Jean-Luc Colombo is based in the northern Rhône and although I've never been a fan of his wines (which can tend to be a bit too modern/international in style) this Côtes du Roussillon really does tick all the right boxes and speaks strongly of it origins. It is full of bright, ripe cherry and berry fruit aromas and flavours, with background notes of peppery spice, damp earth, garrigue herbs and a subtle savoury/meaty quality. The tannins are really quite soft and rounded, but with just the right level of grip, whilst the acidity is a mouth-watering mix of cherry kernel and soft citrus. All-in-all, a beautifully balanced, elegant and very more-ish wine!
