Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "The wine displays soft tannin, but good underlying acidity, terrific blackberry and cassis-like fruit, a saturated black/purple color, and aromas of roasted meats, jammy black fruits, hickory smoke, and licorice. Fine purity, sweet tannin, and well-integrated acidity and alcohol result in a seamless impact. (RP)" 95 points Vinous "Aging as slowly as the 2001, the 1999 Clape Cornas is a brooding, deeply concentrated wine that displays an array of dark fruit, floral scents and a distinctly weighty palate presence. Bitter cherry, black currant, espresso and licorice flavors are slow to unfold, and there’s still a slight firmness to the tannins. That structure doesn’t give me pause; this wine has fruit to spare and I’d be confident holding onto it for at least another 10 years. (JR)" 18 points Jancis Robinson "Such a smoky nose – lapsang souchong and dark red fruits with a note of rose petal and violets beneath. Juicy and supple mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins that pepper the palate – real verve and purpose here and a beautiful blend of savoury, smoke and fresh floral hints. Long and fine and in a good place at the moment. (AC)"
