StyleAromatic & Zesty
Jean-Luc Colombo is a relatively young company by French wine standards. With family origins in Marseille, Jean-Luc moved in 1982, with his wife Anne, to Cornas in the heart of the Rhône Valley, to set up a pharmacy and oenology lab. Four years later he bought his first vineyard - Les Ruchets - and celebrated his first vintage in 1987. His business went from strength-to strength and in 1993 Anne and Jean-Luc sold their pharmacy to focus on the wine business, investing in more vineyards and a house on the Cornas hillsides, as well as working as a negociant in this famous region.
The Picpoul is wonderfully delicate & crisp, with notes of soft tropical fruits and bright, fresh flowers. It pairs nicely with small fried fish or shellfish dishes, but best served chilled, ideally sat in the sunshine!
