Jean-Luc Colombo St. Peray la Belle de Mai 2012
This dry Rosé, a blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvèdre, has complex flavors of fresh raspberries, cherries, a hint of black olive and finishes with an elegant touch of freshness and spice. Serve with a wide range of fish, poultry and vegetarian fare or as simply as an aperitif at a café terrace by the water's edge.
External Reviews for Jean-Luc Colombo St. Peray la Belle de Mai
Cape Bleue Rose 2010 - 88 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar/ Pale pink. Spices and orange zest on the nose, with a slow-building redcurrant quality and a hint of white pepper. Dry, tightly wound and refreshingly brisk, offering nervy but slightly hard-edged red fruit and citrus flavors. Finishes with good bite and length, echoing the citrus note. This drinks very well by itself.
/ Deep ruby. Smoky, mineral-dominated bouquet offers ripe cherry and cassis, along with cured meat, anise and dried flowers. Weightier dark berry flavors are sweetened by cola and floral pastilles, finishing with supple tannins and very good length. This is already complex and not hard at all.
Imported New Releases/ An enchanting scent of white flowers and plums rises from this plush, fruity, Cote-Rotie, a rich wine that shows the ripeness of the vintage. Traditionalists need not buy; hedonists should scoop it up.
Cote Rotie La Divine 2005 - 91 Points, International Wine Review/ Medium ruby in color, La Divine is predominantly Syrah with 5 percent Viognier. Black cherry fruit, tobacco, and licorice aromas lead to a soft, round attack and a focused palate showing clean, and beautifully integrated, flavors of spicy dark cherry and smoky tobacco. Finishes long with fine-grained tannins, cherry and smoke.
The Comeback of Condrieus Is the Story of a Singular Grape/ Fresh, lively and straightforward.
/ Perfumed aromas of mandarin orange and tangerine candy are bright and floral, leading to a burst of stone fruit flavors. The 40-year-old vines here give this a firm and concentrated depth, and while this is aged in 100 percent new oak, the balance is impeccable, adding layers of texture and giving the wine a sense of refinement and grace.
Daily Wine Picks/ Very pure, with a lovely, creamy mouthfeel. Sports melon, mango, peach and butter notes, with a fine minerality buried on the finish. Drink now through 2008.
