Description:
A big wine with an intense colour, nose and palate. Made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre which has been matured in a mix of large oak tanks and oak barrels for 14 months. It has ripe fruit, liquorice and gingerbread characters with a touch of what the locals call 'garrigue' - a reference to typical local herbs. Good structure and balance of tannins, fruit and acidity

The wine is matured traditionally in large oak tanks and partly in oak barrels (20% new and 80% 1 to 4 years old) for 14 months

34% Sangiovese, 33% Grenache, 33% Mourvedre

Producer Information

A rising star from the Rhone and one of the youngest from the region. Made in limited quantities by Laure Colombo, this boutique label is an inspired and personal story best told by Laure herself:
"Growing up in Cornas has not always been an easy thing! I would have loved to take the tube to go to school, to spend my Wednesday afternoons at the public gardens and to feed the pandas at the zoo before sunset.

Instead, I had to take the "Rue Pied la Vigne", lined with cherry trees and old vine stocks of Syrah in order to reach school. I had to play on very steep slopes covered with vines, and before the family Sunday lunch that my parents use to prepare and serve with great wines from around the world, I had to feed the donkeys with carrots collected from the family garden!

My parents never pushed me to follow in their footsteps and become a winemaker like them. Instead, I chose to travel - maybe because of all those bottles from around the world! I travelled until one smoggy morning in New Delhi I realised that the magic potion from my childhood was taking hold! I was missing the vines and the cellar that were so familiar to me. It's when you are far away that the things that are so common become so precious! Without noticing it my roots were coming back.
Since that morning, the magical potion has invaded my entire person and the passion had become a reality. That is how Colombo & Fille was born! Nothing more."
