Style Dry and Light
A light, refreshing, dry ros� 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. Made from a blend of Syrah, Cinsault and Mourv�dre from vineyards nestled in the hills above Marseille; the beautiful and aptly named Blue Coast in a glass.
Country Of Origin: France
In just a few years Jean-Luc Colombo has gone from buying his first vineyard in Cornas to being one of the region�s top winemakers. A dynamic food and wine lover, Jean-Luc's passions are to create wines that give people pleasure, and for each glass to be remembered for its statement of quality. He has been awarded the prestigious L�gion d�Honneur award and the winery has been named as one of the top 100 in the world by Wine & Spirit Magazine.

Jean-Luc and his wife Anne moved to Cornas in 1982 to set up a pharmacy and oenology lab. His dream of purchasing a vineyard came true in 1986, with the first vintage from his Les Ruchets vineyard in 1987. Since then his vinous adventure has gone from strength to strength, they have sold the pharmacy to focus on the wine, investing in more vineyards as well as working as a n�gociant in this famous region.

It is possible to take a vinous journey through this small but perfectly formed appellation or village; starting with Les Collines de Laure Syrah, declassified Cornas (the grapes are too young), moving on to the foothills of Cornas with Les M�jeans and eventually to the single vineyards of La Louv�e and Vallon de L�Aigle.
