Innovation, passion and dedication are what drives Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking is unparalleled. Armed with a pharmacy degree, Jean-Luc and his wife, Anne, opened their wine laboratory in 1984, “Centre Oenologique des Côtes du Rhône” and quickly developed a thriving reputation as a wine consultant throughout France. The Colombo’s innovative approach in the northern appellation of Cornas was nothing short of revolutionary. Today, Jean-Luc Colombo’s wines across a range of style express the typicity of their terroir with elegance and character, from the Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône to his Provençal roses.

“Les Abeilles” (The Bees) is named for the bees that inhabit the vineyards in the southern Rhône Valley where this Côtes du Rhône is produced. The bees thrive in these vineyards because no harsh pesticides are used. The classic Rhone blend of grapes used for this wine (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) are hand-harvested from 25 year-old vines, fermented separately in stainless steel then blended and aged for 12 months before bottling. A food-friendly wine which will perfectly match grilled lamb, pork and assorted cheeses.

Tasting Note:
On the nose, seductive aromas of red fruits, coriander and bay leaf. This is a fresh and silky wine, with notes of liquorice and spice on the palate.
