Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): The 2015 Cornas les Ruchets shows magnificent sandalwood aromas to go along with a plush, rich mouthfeel and a long, silky finish. Along the way it offers hints of cassis, crushed stone and roasted meat, plus some subdued spice notes. It should drink well for 10 years or more.
