Jean-Luc Colombo White Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône les Abeilles 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense purple color. Red fruit, leather and spice on the nose. Complex, with flavors of licorice and spice and silky tannins. A food-friendly wine which will perfectly match grilled lamb, pork and assorted cheeses.

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.
