Description:
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 rose 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 fruit evoke the terroir of the Mediterranean coast. The beautiful and aptly named Blue Coast in a glass.

This wine is made using the traditional saignee method. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to retain the fresh, vibrant fruit flavours.

66% Syrah, 34% Mourvedre

Producer Information

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 Rh��ne 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.
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 Rhone and the Mediterranean region, and export to over fifty countries.
