Description

A red wine from Cornas that harmoniously blends aromatic richness and refinement

The estate

The epicurean oenologists, Jean-Luc Colombo and his wife founded the eponymous estate in 1987, with the ambition of producing fine Cornas wines that highlight the potential of this Rhône Valley terroir. A passionate man, Jean-Luc Colombo favours a plot-based vinification process in order to bring out the pure and authentic expression of the old vines that make up his vineyard.

The wine

This Cornas wine "Les Ruchets" by Jean-Luc Colombo is made from very old vines which reach up to 90 years of age.

With a south-east exposure, this terroir is planted on steep slopes with granite soil covered with ramial wood chips which limits erosion and allows for natural vine growing.

The blend

Syrah (100%).

Les Ruchets 2012 by Jean-Luc Colombo: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Nose

The nose gives off intense fragrances of fresh red fruits.

Palate

The palate is fresh and smooth, with supple tannins, sustained by a subtle minerality that suggests a great ageing potential.

Cellaring

This Cornas wine can be kept in the cellar until around 2031.

Food and wine pairing

This red wine from the Rhône Valley will pair with a leg of lamb served with pan-fried autumn vegetables.
