Cornas, Les Ruchets, Jean-Luc Colombo

Les Ruchets (the beehives) is a precipitous granitic vineyard located above the centre of the village of Cornas, planted with Syrah vines that are up to 90-years-old. Surrounded by juniper bushes and oak trees, the vineyard benefits from an eastern aspect and is warmed by the early morning sun. The wine is gently matured in French oak for two years. Supple, it offers a bouquet of black cherry and blackcurrant with notes of spice and roasted nuts; backed by a rich, chunky finish.
