Cornas, Vallon de L'Aigle, Jean-Luc Colombo

A wine only made in excellent vintages from Syrah vines that have great age and a perfect southerly aspect. The grapes from these granitic terraces, some of the vines are over 200 years old, are hand-harvested and after a month-long maceration and fermentation, the wine is aged for two years in new oak barrels. Outstandingly dark, deep red; dominant notes of violet, wild raspberry with hints of incense and juniper; the palate shows incredible intensity with silky yet robust tannins and tightly coiled flavours of small red and black berries with a delicate spice.
