Hermitage, Domaine du Colombier 2006


75cl ALC 13.5%

From the tallest man in the Rhône, Florent Viale, a quite modern, showy style with lots of oak which comes over as creamy, spicy and full in the mouth, yet still elegant. Dark fruit in the middle, a style that improves with age.

Domaine du Colombier

Florent Viale is a tall, willowy man with a passion for his wines. He took over the family domaine in 1991 from his father (Gaby). Prior to Florent’s arrival the wine was sold to négociants, but he has now reinvented the estate and it is one of the most prominent in Crozes and Hermitage. He now has 18 ha of vines (in Crozes and Hermitage) and 16 of apricot trees. All the vines are around the domaine and the village of Mercurol. They have just 1.6 ha of red vines on the hill of Hermitage in the sought after Beaume, les Dionnières and Croix du Torras areas, plus 0.24 ha of white Hermitage.

Lutte raisonnée is practiced in the vineyards, as stricter organic or biodynamic approval is almost impossible due to the fragmented nature of the vineyards. His methods are traditional with all wines spending 2-3 years in 600 litre demi-muids, and the wines are bottled without filtration or fining to retain maximum character and complexity. Axel, Florent’s son, usually found hands-on in the vineyard with his father is currently taking a sabbatical in Peru. They make intense and powerful wines that have good structure and age well
