The Oddbins Take

When winemakers make wine, they are painting. They may not wear stripy tops and live bohemian lifestyles, but are artists nonetheless and they take their inspiration and their materials from the land around them.



In this instance, the materials are the gentle slopes of the southern Rhône, plentiful sun, which provide enough warmth for the grapes to reach ripeness. They then have the after-effects of the Mistral wind, which tears through the northern Rhône and arrives downstream, offering grapes a gentle respite from the Mediterranean sun.


In the hands of the artists at Jean-Luc Colombo, they turn this palate into a bold, firmly-structured, fine-grained, beauty of a painting.
