At Domaine Jean-Luc Colombo, the very old Syrah vines are cultivated respectfully without chemical additives. Yields are limited to 20 hl/hectare. The grapes for use in this wine are destemmed and vinified under controlled temperatures for one month. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 22 months. The result is a beautiful Cornas that combines power and aromatic complexity. Black berries, liquorice, scrubland aromas and freshness form a seductive bouquet in perfect harmony with an elegant, concentrated palate. Over time, the refined tannins take on a silky, velvety texture. Its keeping potential is somewhere around twenty years. Open it two hours before serving, decanting it into a carafe at room temperature.
Jean-Luc Colombo is a man of passions. At a very young age he inherited a taste for culinary pleasures from his mother, who was a chef in Marseille. His passion for food and a desire to discover the magic of food and wine pairings inspired him to study oenology. In 1984, he set up the "Centre Oenologique des Côtes du Rhône" in Cornas with his wife Anne and offers a technical consultancy service to wine growers in the Rhône Valley and Provence. At their own vineyard, Jean-Luc and Anne are passionate about respecting the environment and the authenticity of the terroir they cultivate. They refuse to use pesticides and herbicides on the vines, they have a horse to plough the soil, and have planted indigenous plant species around their plots to encourage biodiversity and act as a windbreak. They do not irrigate their land, forcing the vines to root deeply and to “suffer” to draw the best from the soil. In 2012 they applied for organic certification.
