2013 Jean-Luc Colombo Chateauneuf du Pape ‘Les Bartavelles’
A bright and intense ruby blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. On the nose a powerful wine, full, complete and silky with notes of ripe fruit, liquorice, and gingerbread. The palate is elegant, rich and deep with mature and velvety tannins. The finish is long and fresh with a well-balanced structure. ‘Quite fruit-driven, with a big ball of cassis and red liquorice waiting to expand, while notes of Linzer torte, fruit cake and plum pudding fill out the broad, polished finish.
