Jean Luc Colombo St Joseph Les Lauves

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.

Named after Cezanne’s studio, Les Lauves, this flamboyant Saint Joseph starts life in vineyards boasting Syrah vines planted in the 1950s on steep granitic terraces. Approachable in style and punching far above its weight, this 100% Syrah spends 12 months maturing in new and second-use oak to allow the ripe, concentrated flavours to integrate and to soften the firm tannins.

Tasting Note:
Generous aromas of cassis, black tea, dark chocolate, and violets set the stage for a rich, well-structured and full bodied wine with toast, cloves and jammy dark fruit flavours.
