To call Jean-Luc Colombo a revolutionary is to merely single out one of the many accolades he has been showered with over the past three decades. Perhaps, one could say his greatest accomplishment is to have tamed the savage, rustic, gritty wines of Cornas and imbue them with an elegance and balance they have never had. He chose modernization and fresh thinking over the stubbornness and rigidity of tradition. His techniques, vision, passion – and, of course, his wines - paved the way for the modern-day success of the northern Rhône Valley. Beginning in 2010 Jean-Luc’s daughter Laure began working side-by-side with her father and mother in the winery, and now she is the head winemaker. Having tasted the wines last week, I can tell you the Colombo legacy rests in worthy, capable hands. Her work continues to define the Colombo style: power and strength tempered by elegance and finesse.
