Jean-Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone La Redonne 2014

Jean-Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone La Redonne 750ml 2014      
Sku: 31603

Rhone Valley, France Vines grow on granite terraces and gravelly alluvial plains of the northern Rhone Valley. The Viognier is sourced from 20-year-old vines just south of Condrieu, and Roussanne from 30-year-old vines near the appellation of St. Joseph. All work in the vineyards is done manually and without the use of pesticides or irrigation, respecting the local environment.

Tasting notes
Color - Light straw gold Bouquet - Viognier brings finesse and aromatic richness of flowers and the Roussane brings strength and round aromas of yellow fruit. Taste - Exotic flavors of mangos and apricots are perfectly balanced by a nice acidity. Full notes of honey and peach develop in the glass, ending with a creamy finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Dec 2015)
A blend of 70% Viognier and 30% Roussanne, the 2014 Cotes du Rhone La Redonne Blanc is a terrific white that should represent value. Raised mostly in stainless steel (a small part of the Roussanne was in barrel), it has lots of saline and marine-like minerality as well as classic Viognier notes of tangerines, orange blossom and white peach. Medium-bodied, juicy, fruity, yet always clean and crisp, it has tons to love and will be a terrific meal-starter over the coming year or two.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested manually in small baskets and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation takes place over 3 weeks at low temperatures, with a maximum of 64.4F. 20% of the wine is matured on its lees in two- or three-year-old barrels; the remaining 80% is matured on its lees in tanks to enhance freshness. The wine is then aged for 12 months.

Technical notes
70% Viognier; 30% Roussanne

Food pairing
Perfect as an aperitif, it will also complement fish, shellfish, pasta in cream-based sauce and roasted poultry.
