Intro to Jean Luc Colombo Les Pins Couches Rose Rhone France 2016 –
Jean Luc Colombo Les Pins Couches Rose (The Sleeping Pines) is a Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre blend close to Jean Luc’s heart, reflecting the style he wants to make from his Marseille roots. A ‘Provence’ style rosé – dry, light, fresh and fruity, sophisticated pink at its best!
Full tasting note and wine making –
Jean-Luc is pioneering vineyard development in a beautiful, scenic area just north of Marseille, and this wine is close to his heart, reflecting the style he wants to make from this area. A light, refreshing, dry rosé with abundant yet subtle red fruit characters, dominated by powerful aromas reminiscent of the Mediterranean scrubland (garrigue). On the palate, notes of black olives, herbs and fresh fruits evoke the terroir of the Mediterranean coast. The beautiful and aptly named ‘Blue Coast’ in a glass.
From vineyards nestled in the hills above the bay of Marseille planted on light stony limestone soil and it is made using the traditional ‘saignée’ method. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to retain the fresh, vibrant fruit flavours.
The producer –
Today, as well as owning vineyards in Cornas, they 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.
Drink with –
This rose is great with grilled and roasted white meats, fish and shellfish, and a salad nicoise . Delicious for a picnic too!
