Reviews for Jean Luc Colombo Cornas “La Louvée”

Wine Shops United jean Luc Colombo Cornas La Louvée

2013 Jean Luc Colombo  Cornas “La Louvée”

93 Points  Wine Advocate
“The 2013 Jean Luc Colombo  Cornas la Louvee is gorgeous and has considerable elegance and purity in its cassis, liquid blackberry, licorice and crushed rock-laced bouquet. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, pure, perfectly balanced Cornas that has plenty of tannin, yet also plenty of fruit and mid-palate depth. More mineral driven than the les Ruchets, enjoy this complete, textured and lengthy 2013 anytime over the coming 15 years.”

2012 Jean Luc Colombo  Cornas “La Louvée”

95 Points  Wine Spectator
“This delivers a beautiful beam of ripe, pure plum, cassis and bitter cherry fruit notes, underscored by chalk, bay leaf, lavender and iron accents. The long, tightly focused finish shows serious grip for the vintage.”

91 Points  Vinous
“Inky purple. Pungent cherry pit, blackberry and violet aromas are complemented by hints of peppery spices, woodsmoke and minerals. Succulent and expansive on the palate, offering gently sweet dark berry flavors and a subtle licorice pastille quality. Concentrated yet lively and precise, finishing with excellent clarity, slow-building tannins and very good smoky persistence.”

 

2011 Jean Luc Colombo Cornas “La Louvee”

94 Points  Wine Spectator
“This drips with cassis, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce flavors, maintaining terrific verve. The iron spine and bay leaf- and sweet tapenade-fueled finish keeps this grounded. Long and sleek, with mouthwatering acidity stitching everything together.”

93 Points  Wine Enthusiast
“Plummy and ripe, with a sheen of glossy, cedary oak, this is as plush as it gets in the northern Rhone. It’s full-bodied, supple and open, with a long velvety finish. Drink now-2030.”

92 Points  Vinous
“Bright purple. Fresh black raspberry and blueberry aromas are complemented by dried violet, anise and olive. Chewy dark fruit flavors show very good concentration and clarity, along with a sweet vanilla touch on the back half. Finishes with chewy, mineral-accented cherry and cassis flavors and excellent persistence.”
