Hailed as the winemaking wizard of the Rhone, Jean-Luc Colombo has achieved a high-profile international reputation for making innovative wines that are original, memorable and bursting with personality. Despite a resolute aversion to change in the Cornas region, Colombo has brazenly introduced innovative methods in his vineyards and throughout the production process based on a respect for nature and his fundamental belief that good wine is the culmination of three key elements: terroir, human endeavor and modern winemaking techniques. Colombo has turned to the vineyards of the blue coast near Marseille for the inspiration behind his Cape Bleue Rose. In a return to his roots, Colombo, a native of the area, produces this delicate, expressive Rose from this promontory of land overlooking the bay of Marseille. Known for its shimmering landscape, this area of Provence has been captured on canvas by countless artists, most famously Cezanne.
Soft, delicate pink. Subtle hints of peach, rose petal and pepper on the nose. Dry and complex, with intriguing notes of raspberries, fresh cherry, black olive and fennel.
