Decomposed granite soils and stressed growing conditions contribute to the quintessential quality and character this beautiful, Cornas wine. “Les Ruchets” stands out as Jean-Luc Colombo’s signature wine, first released in 1987. Grapes are grown on 90 year-old vines, hand-harvested and aged for 22 months in a mix of old and new barrels. The wine is then fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. The result is a superb: elegant, complex and powerful, with notes of spices, violet, black fruit and vanilla.
