Jean-Luc Colombo La Louvee Cornas 2003
from Cornas, Rhone, France
100% Syrah from 70+–year-old vines.
All work in the vineyard is done manually. After complete de-stemming, the grapes are macerated for one month, then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged 18 months in new oak barrels.
Powerful, rich and complex, with aromas of black fruit and hints of chocolate and licorice.
Harmonious and elegant, "La Louvée" exhibits outstanding concentration and a long, lingering finish. Enjoyable in youth, it has the potential to mature and evolve for another two decades or more.
This Cornas pairs perfectly with beef, game, truffles and mushroom-based dishes.
Single vineyard site characterized by granite areas on the steep slopes of the right bank of the Rhône.
