With a seductive nose of violet and dark chocolate, this wine is fleshy and round on the palate with aromas of ripe griotte, prune and a hint of tobacco. It finishes with good length and elegance.
Les Palomettes is made from grapes of very old vines, some around 70 years old. Planted on small rolling hills at the foothills of Mont Canigou (Pyrenees), with a strong influence from the Mediterranean Sea.
Jean-Luc Colombo is a relatively young company by French wine standards. My wife Anne and I moved to Cornas in the heart of the Rhône Valley in 1982. First, we set up an oenology lab and I began working as a winemaking consultant in the region. Four years later, we bought our first vineyard ‘Les Ruchets’ and celebrated the first vintage in 1987. The business went from strength-to-strength which allowed us to invest in more vineyards and a house on the Cornas hillside, whilst working as a regional négociant. Today, as well as owning vineyards in Cornas, Saint-Péray and the surrounding area, we are investing in a vineyard and winery development in the stunning ‘Blue Coast’ area and have our own winery, offices, bottling line and oenology laboratory in the centre of Cornas.

A refreshing dry wine with notes of grapefruit, lime and lemon peel perfectly balanced by tropical fruit flavours. It is well balanced with zesty acidity and a smooth texture that lingers on the palate.
