2017 Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas "Les Terres Brûlées", 750ml
Regular price $365.00
- "The Scorched Earth".
- From a blend of vines in the appellation, 20-60 years old - the most elegant and approachable of Colombo's Cornas. Aged two years in oak.
"Dark violet. Intense cherry and dark berry preserve aromas are complemented by hints of cracked pepper, pungent flowers and baking spices. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering pliant bitter cherry, blueberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen and turn sweeter on the back half. Supple tannins build on a long, spice-tinged finish that leaves behind dark chocolate and candied violet flourishes."
