2005 Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas #167229920
Based on 84 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "...ruby color to go with lots of crushed rock-like minerality, violets, pepper and gamy, meaty nuances on the nose. These flow to a medium-bodied, firm, tight Cornas that has bright acidity, good concentration and plenty of tannin. (JD)" 93 points Vinous "Bright ruby. Strikingly fresh aromas of red berries, kirsch, incense and cured meat; turned even brighter with air, emphasizing raspberry and blackberry. Supple strawberry and raspberry flavors betray no rough edges and gain a compelling spiciness on the long, sappy finish. Wonderfully spherical for Cornas. (JR)"

About Domaine Auguste Clape
These traditional Cornas wines are crafted from old vines grown on steep, hand-tended vineyards, lending their deep, characteristic flavors to the wines. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, yielding a wine that can almost be mistaken for coming from Southern France.
Clape was a pioneer in Cornas, being the first to bottle his own wine in 1957. These Syrah masterpieces are known for their dark berry, black olive, dried herb, smoke, and violet flavors when young and develop deep complexity and velvety texture with age. These wines are a must-try for any wine enthusiast, and we highly recommend them.
