Viticultural notes

“La Redonne” is the name of a picturesque cove in the “Cote Bleue” where Jean-Luc Colombo spent his youth. This northern Rhône Valley Côtes du Rhône comes from gravelly, alluvial terraces with 20-year-old Voigner vines from just south of Condrieu, and Roussanne from 30-year-old vines near the appellation of St. Joseph. All grapes are hand-picked.

Winemaking notes

Grapes are harvested manually in small baskets and vinified in stainless steel tanks. 20% of the wine is matured on its lees in two- or three-year-old barrels; 80% is matured on its lees in tanks to enhance freshness. The wine is aged for 12 months.

James Molesworth, November 2017

Alluring, with a creamy feel and anise, plantain and yellow apple fruit flavors seamlessly layered together. Light almond details echo on the finish. Viognier and Roussanne. Drink now through 2019. 3,000 cases made.
