Winemaker's Notes

Jean-Luc Colombo, who in recent years has forged a reputation as one of the most visionary winemakers to emerge from France's Rhone Valley, has turned to the vineyards of the Cote Bleue (Blue Coast) near Marseille for the inspiration behind his latest winemaking venture. In a return to his roots, Colombo, a native of the Côte Bleue where he spent his childhood and adolescence, introduced in 2002 a new range of wines from this promontory of land overlooking the bay of Marseille. Known for its shimmering landscape, the Cote Bleue has been captured on canvas by countless artists, most famously Cezanne. Colombo is determined to put it on the wine lover's map and has already set out on a mission to obtain Appellation Contrôlée status for the area.

Surprisingly complex, with intriguing notes of raspberry, cherry and black olive.

A great rosé to enjoy on its own or with a wide range of appetizers, fish, poultry dishes and vegetarian fare.

Blend: 40% Syrah, 40% Mourvèdre, 20% Counoise.
