2017 Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas "La Louvée", 750ml
Regular price $595.00
- "The She Wolf".
- A parcel of 70 year old vines named for Jean-Luc's wife, Anne.
- South-Eastern exposure makes this the most concentrated of their Cornas.
"Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruit, floral and exotic spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a hint of smokiness with aeration. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet black currant, cherry and mulberry flavors that tighten up slowly through the back half. Shows sharp definition and spicy lift on a long, smooth, floral-accented finish framed by supple tannins."
93/100 Josh Raynolds for Vinous.
