All Vintages of this wine

Ruchets wines are made from Syrah vines growing on granite land, between juniper and green oak trees. Located East, in the Cornas appellation, the unique parcel -and pride of Jean-Luc Colombo- produces superior wines every year. The 2012 Ruchet boasts a gorgeous violet-tinted, shiny red hue. The nose exudes scents of cassis, blackberries, and spices: pepper, violet, or thicket. The palate is strong, spicy and warm, and leads to a persistent, sweet finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
My favorite of the 2012 Cornas, the 2012 Cornas les Ruchets comes from older vines in the Chaillot lieu-dit and sees roughly 20% of the blend in new barrels. It's a beautiful effort that exhibits lots of gamey meat, olive, spring flowers and chocolate-laced dark fruits. Medium to full-bodied, textured and hedonistic, it shows the 2012 vintage nicely and should be consumed over the coming decade.
