Jean-Luc Colombo 1997 Les Ruchets (Cornas)
From the same man who brought you the great Les Abeilles Côtes-du-Rhône, here's a sensational Cornas. Great as it is, it will cause raised eyebrows at this price. You wouldn't quibble if this were a Hermitage or Côte-Rôtie, but $60 for a Cornas? Yet it's worth it. A big, layered, chewy wine that wears its oak gracefully.

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
