Shows 'garrigue' aromas with fresh cherry and raspberry fruit and a hint of liquorice. Powerful and well-balanced palate again with cherry as well as violet and black pepper: 50% of the blend is Syrah, with Grenache, 40%, and Mourvèdre and Carignan, 5% each, completing the blend.

The village of Séguret is about five miles north of Gigondas to the east of Orange, the vineyards here are on gentle slopes of limestone and sand. 

In just a few years Jean-Luc Colombo has gone from buying his first vineyard in Cornas to being one of the region’s top winemakers. A dynamic food and wine lover, Jean-Luc''s passions are to create wines that give people pleasure, and for each glass to be remembered for its statement of quality. He has been awarded the prestigious Légion d’Honneur award and the winery has been named as one of the top 100 in the world by Wine & Spirit Magazine.Jean-Luc and his wife Anne moved to Cornas in 1982 to set up a pharmacy and oenology lab. His dream of purchasing a vineyard came true in 1986, with the first vintage from his Les Ruchets vineyard in 1987. Since then his vinous adventure has gone from strength to strength, they have sold the pharmacy to focus on the wine, investing in more vineyards as well as working as a négociant in this famous region.It is possible to take a vinous journey through this small but perfectly formed appellation or village; starting with Les Collines de Laure Syrah, declassified Cornas (the grapes are too young), moving on to the foothills of Cornas with Les Méjeans and eventually to the single vineyards of La Louvée and Vallon de L’Aigle.

A great all-rounder, as good with Mediterranean dishes as with spicy food or a Sunday roast.
