Winemaker Notes

A superb deep black cherry color. Complex and elegant aromas of spices, violets, black fruit and vanilla. The palate is powerful and structured with notes of black fruit, herbs, white pepper and blueberry.

Delicious with game such as duck, hare or pigeon but also perfect with roasted entrecote steak.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
This has a dark, muscular edge, with smoldering charcoal and warm iron notes leading the way for a core of steeped black currant and blackberry fruit. The finish rumbles along, presenting some slightly chewy grip. The ample freshness and flesh throughout bodes well for cellaring. Best from 2018 through 2024.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Innovation, passion and dedication are what drive Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking has remained unparalleled since 1984. Colombo’s innovative approach in the northern appellation of Cornas was nothing short of revolutionary; his expressive, character-driven wines have helped breath new life into this highly prestigious and acclaimed appellation.

Jean-Luc, Anne and their daughter Laure, now head winemaker, continue to ensure the production of fine wines of typicity from major appellations of the Rhône Valley, as well as the Languedoc and Provence, while maintaining sustainable farming practices.

Distinguished as a fine Syrah producing zone since the 18th century, Cornas, like Cote Rotie, is made up of vineyards covering steep and hard-to-work, granite terraces. As a result the region’s wines fell out of favor during the mid 20th century when the global market was more focused on bulk wines and vineyards that yielded high quantities. It wasn’t until the 1980s when a group of energetic young winemakers reestablished the integrity of these precipitous terraces and also began making an ultra-modern style of Syrah. The new style didn’t need a decade before it was drinkable and could reach the consumer faster than the region’s traditional wines. Given the new quality coming out of the zone, its popularity once again soared and today a good Cornas can easily challenge many of those from Hermitage. Characteristics of Syrah from Cornas include teeth-staining flavors of blackberry jam, plum, pepper, violets, smoked game, charcoal, chalk dust and smoke.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
