Jean-Luc Colombo White Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône les Abeilles 2007
Jean-Luc Colombo was born in Marseilles and originally trained as a pharmacist but in 1986 he bought the 8 hectare 'Les Ruchots ' vineyard in the Cornas appellation.He still lives on that estate,which is now organic, with his wife Anne and daughter Lauren but his business has expanded considerably as he now owns vineyards in many Rhone valley and Languedoc appellations and also operates as a consultant and negociant..
Very drinkable. Excellent value.
Marked down to $5 (US) for a bottle. Slightly tarry and tangy aroma. Fairly sour and robust flavor, with a dash of salt. This might be good for those who like earthy wines, but it was not my favorite. It was better after a day in the refrigerator.
Good for the price
