Wine information: Jean-Luc Colombo is a relatively young French wine company. Jean-Luc, and his wife, Anne, moved to Cornas from Marseille in 1982 to set up a pharmacy and oenology lab. Four years later, he bought his first vineyard and celebrated his first vintage in 1987. Top quality fruit is sourced from Colombo’s own 20 hectares of vineyards in the northern Rhone (where the company have their headquarters) primarily in Cornas and St Peray, and from his 40 hectares of pioneering vineyard development in the stunning ‘Blue Coast’ area. This is truly a family business: Anne is vineyard manager and wine-maker, as is Laure, their daughter, who joined the family domaine in 2010. Laure is also the figurehead for the sister brand of Colombo & Fille. The winemaking philosophy is classic – it is about respecting the fruit, with vinification and élévage serving to define a style that should exalt elegance and complexity, with good fruit and freshness, and balanced minerality, alcohol and tannins. Jean-Luc Colombo's Côte Rôtie La Divine is mainly Syrah with about 5% Viognier in the blend. The vineyard soils for La Divine are ferrous micashiste terraces, very steep, covered with a layer of sand-lime. The wine undergoes an extended maceration and the wine is matured for 18 month in oak barrels. Before bottling the wine is fined using egg whites.

Tasting Notes: Côte Rôtie La Divine is a deep ruby colour. The nose is packed with exotic spices, jammy blackcurrant and smokey notes. It is a full-bodied, well-structured wine with a round and powerful attack. The palate shows persistent aromas of red fruit, dense flavours and superb concentration.

Food & Wine match: Try with lamb, chicken in a tagine, partridge, waterfowl.
