The 2004 Cornas Les Ruchets, which sees more new oak, comes across as more austere than the Terres Brulees, but it is a bigger wine, although not necessarily better, because the new oak seems to overwhelm the more delicate fruit of this vintage. This dark ruby/purple wine is tannic, backward, and while perhaps more will emerge with aging, I doubt the concentration will carry all the tannin in this wine. It is impressively pure, and it is a relatively big wine for the vintage, but I wouldn’t want to touch it for 4-5 years. Apr 2007, www.robertparker.com
