The Oddbins Take

Before turning to wine, Colombo was a blue-collar viticulture detective in California. With an unconventional manner and no great focus for high fashion, he was often dismissed by potential suspects. More fool them! Colombo was dogged, relentless and had a formidable eye for detail that would often prompt a confession: "fine, I can't continue living a lie! It was I, the phylloxera aphid that killed Madame Durand's Syrah vines.



He couldn't carry on though, there's only so much brutality one man can see before he has to give up the game. While his vineyard detective skills will be sorely missed, today he is a winemaker in his own right. After sampling Jean Luc Colombo Chateauneuf du Pape Bartavelles, with its velvety structure and immense flavour profile of dark forest fruit, liquorice and gingerbread, it is clear he's made the most of his retirement from the LAVD.
