Jean Luc Colombo Condrieu Amour de Dieu

£56.05
Innovation, passion and dedication are what drives Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking is unparalleled. Armed with a pharmacy degree, Jean-Luc and his wife, Anne, opened their wine laboratory in 1984, “Centre Oenologique des Côtes du Rhône” and quickly developed a thriving reputation as a wine consultant throughout France. The Colombo’s innovative approach in the northern appellation of Cornas was nothing short of revolutionary. Today, Jean-Luc Colombo’s wines across a range of style express the typicity of their terroir with elegance and character, from the Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône to his Provençal roses.

Viognier grapes from 40-year-old vines are hand-harvested and de-stemmed. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit. Aged ‘sur lie’ in oak for ten months, rounding out and softening the mouthfeel. Weekly stirring of lees followed by malolactic fermentation. Pairs well with fish dishes, poultry, grilled white meats, salads, grilled vegetables and a variety of appetisers.

Tasting Note:
Complex nose of apricots, pear, acacia and soft spices accompanied by hints of vanilla. On the palate, rich, powerful, and aromatic with a long and elegant finish; intense flavors of lychee nut, peach and exotic fruit.
