Laure Colombo and Jean-Jacques Dubourdieu are the daughter and son of two well-known and recognized winegrowers from the Rhône and Bordeaux. With this cuvée, Laure and Jean-Jacques manage to make a name for themselves by transmitting the passion of their terroirs by reviving an ancient wine tradition! It is a blend of two terroirs, the Rhône and Bordeaux, as their fathers once did!

This is how they created the cuvée called "CARNIVORE". This catchy name gives birth to a marriage, not between two men, but between two terroirs. Indeed, 55% of Syrah from the Cornas cuvée and 45% from Cabernet-Sauvignon can be found there.

Our story


During the 18th and 19th centuries, the specifications of the PDOs had not yet been drawn up, so there was total freedom! That's why when a Bordeaux turned out to be a little thin, it was none other than Rhone Valley wine that came to support it! It was by studying the history of their respective regions that the idea came to (re)discover this tradition that has been brought up to date! This cuvée is of course produced in the Vin de France appellation, and makes it possible to update an old practice often carried out at the time, that of hermitagating the wines.

In short, these two young winegrowers and oenologists have taken over history by adding a touch of modernity, freshness and audacity! Tasting the Carnivore cuvée is like adopting it!

Other little stories


Both children of famous winegrowers, they met during their studies. As the years go by, friendship lasts and with it the desire for common projects such as this "Carnivore" cuvée will emerge! Between straightness and spicy madness, a touch of charm, this wine reflects the young and lively spirit of Laure and Jean-Jacques.

In the end, it's a vintage that's a discount!
