This kitchen towel always reminds to stop and drink the rosé 😉🌹 So I did just that. After a busy day of errands and housework, I took a break with a 2016 Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rosé.
This wine is made in France’s Rhone Valley. The vines grow on calcareous rocks overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is created with the traditional “saifnée” method, which means it undergoes a 10 hour cold soak until the desired color is achieved, then tanks are drained of juice and must. It’s a blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre.
It is a soft salmon pink in color. The aroma has notes of citrus, florals, and peach, which translate onto the palate. You also tastes some berries, but it’s crisp, dry, and fresh. It lingers nicely. I found it online for $12. It was my reward after a long day of housework. 3/5.
