Jean Luc Colombo Hermitage Le Rouet Rouge

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.

Hermitage has an ideal left-bank site with optimal sun exposure while also being sheltered from the Mistral winds. “Le Rouet” (the name of a picturesque cove near Marseilles) lends itself to this majestic wine of purity, finesse and pedigree. A Syrah-driven blend with a small portion of Roussanne blended in for aromatics.

Tasting Note:
A nose full of finesse and purity of red fruit, chocolate and spices dominating. On the palate, an elegant and well-balanced wine with focused redcurrant, red cherry, and cloves.
