  • Jean-Luc-Colombo Cotes-du-Rhone le Vent Blanc 2014

  • Jean-Luc Colombo Rose 2014

    Snoothrank:

    With an impressive read on the French label, it sounded like this rose' was worth a go. Colour was a bit of a warning, as most rose's I enjoy are a light to deep pink with a boarderline red. Scent was light, a bit floral and also concerning but taste is what matters. On the pour, it seemed very peach. Peach? Okay, trying not to judge a wine... Read More

  • Jean-Luc Colombo la Redonne Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty golden color. Faint and pleasant tropical fruit aromas. Quite light-bodied on the palatealmost watery. Not the fruit that the aromas forecasted. A bit of bitterness. As the wine warms up a bit, though, some more fruit flavor emergesapple as much as anything. Also, viscosity seems to change. An OK wine, but not a great wine. Read More

  • Jean Luc Colombo Colombo Cote Bleue Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light peachy pink. Juicy strawberry, nectarine and other stone fruits. Slight medicinal quality. Seemed to have some heat but alc. is only 12.5%. Palate was a bit underwhelming. Read More

    Wine review by joebernardinoATyahoo


  • For March, my tasting group explored the length of the Rhône valley.  Probably for consistency of quality, one of our best tastings to date with just about all o the wines showing well and being universally liked by all.  I was lucky to find/have access to some older vintages from estate sales and store cellars, so it made for a fun night.  Here...
