Jean Luc Colombo La Dame du Rouet Coteaux D’Aix En Provence Rose

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.

A classic Southern French rose blend of Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache. The ”Blue Coast” (Côte Bleue) just west of Marseille, stands out as an exceptional isthmus of land full of small streams and rocky coves. Beloved by Jean-Luc since his childhood, he often sailed in the surrounding waters. Upon his return to shore, he always thanked the Lady of “Le Rouet” (a picturesque cove) for his safe return. The cove is named for a church that sits atop a hill on the blue coast

Tasting Note:
Full bodied yet crisp and finessed with complex flavors such as redcurrants and raspberries, but also some garrigue aromas of rosemary, thyme, fennel and pine.
