|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
|Brand||Jean Luc Colombo|
Wine EnthusiastThis buoyant red wine is marked by aromas of ripe blackberries, blueberries and anise. It's full bodied and plump but balanced by crisp acidity and a firm, tannic finish. An easy-drinking but classic Côtes du Rhône, it has just a hint of mineral intensity.
Wine Review OnlineThis is a wine that is all about Southern France. With is dark purple hue, its sensory attributes of fruit, spice and hints of anise, its complex but absolutely accessible flavors and its silky-smooth texture, “Les Abeilles” is easy to love. The grapes -- Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre -- are grown in ancient terraced vineyards, where all the work is done manually, without pesticides or irrigation.
Wine SpectatorJuicy and solid, with a ball of red licorice and plum paste flavors backed by a light graphite spine. Perfect for the back-deck grill. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
