The elegance and richness of a wine from Cornas by Jean-Luc Colombo

The producer

Epicurean oenologists, Jean-Luc Colombo and his wife founded in 1987 the eponymous domain, with the ambition to elaborate great wines of Cornas magnifying the potential of this Rhone Valley terroir . Passionate, Jean-Luc Colombo favours parcellary winemaking in order to produce a pure and authentic expression of the old vineyards that make up its vineyard.

The wine

The appellation Cornas is composed of granitic terraces overlooking the Rhone, covering an area of 110 hectares. The origin of the La Louvée du Domaine Colombo cuvée and home of Syrah, this unique terroir produces wines of character combining minerality, depth, power and complexity. The older vineyards of the estate, up to 90 years, are located on a south-facing vineyard.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvested manually in small crates to preserve the integrity of the fruit, the grapes are scraped and then vinified in thermo-regulated vats for one month. With a duration of 22 months, the ageing is carried out in oak barrels, of which 85% are of one to three previous wines and 15% are new.

Blend

Jean-Luc Colombo's La Louvée 2011 is a 100% Syrah.

Tasting

Colour

Superb, the wine is an intense deep red colour.

Nose

Powerful and complex, the nose mixes fragrances of black fruit, gun powder and liquorice with tasty notes of garrigue.

Palate

Harmonious and concentrated, the palate seduces with its elegance, its balance and its finish, which reveals ripe and silky tannins.

Service

For an optimal tasting, serve at 18°C after decanting the wine.

Guard

This wine of Cornas can wait in your cellar until 2031 to reveal the whole of its aromatic palette.

Food and wine pairing

La Louvée 2011 by Jean-Luc Colombo will go perfectly with red meats (pigeon cooked in a casserole).
