Bee Helpful: For every bottle of Jean-Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone Les Les Abeilles ("THE BEES" in French) purchased, a donation will support honeybee research and edulcation.
Help save the honey bees! Honey bee colonies are collapsing at an alarming rate. People rely on honey bees to pollinate more than 90% of flowering crops - including many of the fruit and food items we eat. Research is needed to help understand the causes of honey bee declines and restore and protect healthy colonies.
Smooth & Supple
This Rhone blend seems young, slightly too tart, and a bit bland. I think there are much nicer examples of this blend available. There was a reasonable smoothness to the finish, but not much berry depth or complexity.
