2015 Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas #166281322
Based on 29 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 96 points Vinous "Dark purple. Deep-pitched, mineral-accented black and blue fruit liqueur, olive and floral pastille aromas develop peppery spice and cola notes with aeration. Sappy and deeply concentrated on the palate, offering boysenberry, cassis and fruitcake flavors that are sharpened by smoky mineral and cracked pepper flourishes. The mineral note drives the extremely long, energetic finish, and chewy tannins provide shape and solid grip. (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.
