JEAN-LUC COLOMBO

LVT 2015 r 2015 wh The Wandering Minstrel of Cornas. Anne Colombo vinifies the wines, and the touch is lighter than in the past - less new oak as well. The whites are now interesting, refined. There is a wide négociant range from purchased wines from both Northern and Southern Rhône. Daughter Laure joined full-time in summer 2011, having vinified here in 2010, and spent time at Château Haut-Brion, two years at the Wine School of Montpellier, and a stage at Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine Saint-Préfert. She also worked for a year in marketing in Delhi, India. From 2013 Laure has made more of a personal mark on the wines. The three Cornas have good style, while the whites are tending towards New Wave, airborne treatment. There is a very good vin de pays Clairette, Les Anthénors, from the Bouches du Rhône west of Marseille.
