Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Cornas les Ruchets comes all from the Chaillot lieu-dit (I believe Les Ruchets refers to a specific parcel within the vineyard), and was raised in a combination of new and older barrels. Giving up lots of mostly red fruits intermixed with complex notes of peppery herbs, potpourri and spring flowers, it's medium plus-bodied, nicely concentrated and structured on the palate with a tight, slightly backwards feel. It needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years, at which point it should drink nicely for a decade.
