All Vintages of this wine

The cuvee Cornas Les Ruchets is the first wine created by Domaine Jean-Luc Colombo in 1987. It is exclusively made of Syrah that grows on the granitic soils of the famous steep hills of Chaillot in Cornas. The 2015 displays a garnet-tinted deep red colour. This 2015 Cornas Les Ruchets offers a deep and broad palate with certain strength and great finesse. The tannins are ripped, tight and smooth. Its balance is precise, offers a velvety texture as well as a good length. Complexity is revealed thanks to the ageing in oak barrels. 

Parker : 93 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Cornas les Ruchets shows magnificent sandalwood aromas to go along with a plush, rich mouthfeel and a long, silky finish. Along the way it offers hints of cassis, crushed stone and roasted meat, plus some subdued spice notes. It should drink well for 10 years or more.
