Winemaker Notes

Light straw color. Intense floral aromas with scents of peach and melon followed by herbal and mineral notes. This is a complex, crisp and well-balanced wine with flavors of stone fruit, citrus and pear.

A food-friendly wine which perfectly matches grilled lamb, pork and assorted cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

Blossomy and fresh, Jean Luc Colombo's entry-level bottling offers a bang-for-your-buck introduction to the Rhône region's uniquely silken, textural white wines. Made primarily from Clairette, it's chock-full of easy drinking apple and lemon flavors touched by hints of bitter almond and smoke. Drink now through 2020.

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Plump and friendly, with yellow apple, honeysuckle and mirabelle plum notes mixed together. A flash of quinine on the shortbread-framed finish keeps this honest. A crowd-pleaser.

Innovation, passion and dedication are what drive Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking has remained unparalleled since 1984. Colombo’s innovative approach in the northern appellation of Cornas was nothing short of revolutionary; his expressive, character-driven wines have helped breath new life into this highly prestigious and acclaimed appellation.

Jean-Luc, Anne and their daughter Laure, now head winemaker, continue to ensure the production of fine wines of typicity from major appellations of the Rhône Valley, as well as the Languedoc and Provence, while maintaining sustainable farming practices.

Typically thought of as a baby Chateâuneuf-du-Pape, the term Côtes du Rhône actually doesn’t merely apply to the flatter outskirts of the major southern Rhône appellations, it also includes the fringes of well-respected northern Rhône appellations. White wines can be produced under the appellation name, but very little is actually made.

The region offers some of the best values in France and even some first-rate and age-worthy reds. Red wine varieties include most of the Chateâuneuf-du-Pape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Counoise, as well as Carignan. White grapes grown include Grenache blanc, Roussanne and Viognier, among others.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
