Jean Luc Colombo Les Fees Brunes Crozes Hermitage –
Jean Luc Colombo Les Fees Brunes Crozes Hermitage Rhone Valley France is an upmarket cuvée from a single vineyard block displaying delicate notes of blackcurrant and raspberry on the nose leading to a fresh, juicy cherry and black plum fruit palate.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Jean Luc Colombo Les Fees Brunes is made from fruit grown in vineyards planted on the granitic terraced slopes of this renowned appellation in the Northern Rhône. The grapes are manually harvested into small, shallow containers and vinified traditionally, undergoing a long maceration process. The wine is aged for 15 months in oak barrels (1/3 in new oak, 1/3 in 1 year old, 1/3 in 2 years old barrels.)
It is made from a single vineyard Syrah block and is charming and delicate like the fairies it is named for, Les Fées Brunes with a juicy cherry and black plum fruit palate creating a seriously refined and elegant Crozes Hermitage.
The producer –
Today, as well as owning vineyards in Cornas, Jean-Luc Colombo are pioneering vineyard development in the stunning ‘Blue Coast’ area and have their own winery, offices, bottling line and oenology laboratory in the centre of Cornas. They are renowned for their great wines from the northern & southern Rhône and the Mediterranean region, and export to over fifty countries.
Jean-Luc Colombo is a relatively young company by French wine standards. With family origins in Marseille, Jean-Luc moved in 1982, with his wife Anne, to Cornas in the heart of the Rhône Valley, to set up a pharmacy and oenology lab. Four years later he bought his first vineyard – Les Ruchets – and celebrated his first vintage in 1987. His business went from strength-to strength and in 1993 Anne and Jean-Luc sold their pharmacy to focus on the wine business, investing in more vineyards and a house on the Cornas hillsides, as well as working as a negociant in this famous region.
