2014 Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas Renaissance #159321952
Based on 23 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "Classic Clape in every way, with its meaty, bloody, iron, crushed rock and violet-tinged fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and supple, with beautiful fruit. There's plenty of fine tannin here, but it also has a solid density of fruit and a beautiful texture. (JD)" 92 points Vinous "Inky ruby. Spice- and smoke-accented dark berry, licorice and olive aromas on the deeply perfumed nose; a complicating floral nuance builds in the glass. Densely packed cherry, cassis and spicecake flavors are braced by an undertone of juicy minerality that adds lively cut and lift. Shows excellent clarity on the sweet, expansive finish, which is framed by harmonious tannins. (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.
