Jean-Luc Colombo White Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône les Abeilles 2009
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..
The variation in the reviews is very interesting. This is good, it is a GSM that tastes more like something Australian than French, it has a touch of sweetness on the finish. A fruit bomb. Good wine. Average for the price.
Acidic, weak fruit, steely mouth feel. Poor value even at this price.
