The Cornas appellation is produced on small (130 hectares) steep granite-rich terraced plantings overlooking the Rhone Valley. It is on this single-grape vineyard, that Syrah vines as old as 90 years, found the purest expression of their character. Domaine Jean-Luc Colombo created elegant, rich, sturdy wines from this unique grape variety. The 2015 Cornas La louvee displays a gorgeous deep red hue.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The full-bodied 2015 Cornas la Louvee offers authentic Cornas notes of roasted meat, licorice and cracked pepper wrapped in a robe of cedar, leather and cinnamon. It's not a fruit-forward wine but it's already approachable, with a ripe, creamy mouthfeel and a long, supple finish. It should drink well for at least a decade.
