Domaine Colombo Terres Brulees Cornas 2019
Domaine Colombo Terres Brulees Cornas
Located in the Rhône Valley in the village of Cornas, Jean-Luc Colombo has been producing top quality wines since the 1980s.
Jean-Luc’s fulfilment of a childhood dream came with the purchase of his first vineyard, a small parcel of old vines planted on a granite hillside overlooking the village of Cornas. The 1987 release of Jean-Luc’s first vintage of Cornas Les Ruchets was a great success, taking the French wine world by storm, and becoming the first in a long series of vintages of what is universally regarded as Colombo’s iconic wine.
Jean-Luc Colombo himself is a man passionate about cuisine and fine wine. Jean-Luc and his wife Anne have overseen Jean-Luc Colombo wines since the first plot was purchased in the 1980s, and in 2010 their daughter, Laure, joined the family Domaine. A trained viticulturist and oenologist, her first vintages have already received critical acclaim.
Over time, the range has steadily grown to include red and white wines from the Rhône Valley. Jean-Luc also has a great love for the Mediterranean, and the Blue Coast in particular, where he pioneered vine growing, producing his first vintage in 2012. Each of the wines in the range has a distinctive label, carefully created by painter and family friend of the Colombo family, Marie-Annick Dutreil.
