Reviews 92-94 points Wine Advocate "It's full-bodied, dense and tannic, with notes of horse liniment and cassis, plus savory undertones of black olive. Rich, velvety textured and long on the finish, it looks to be a solid effort. (JC)" 92-94 points Vinous "Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven dark fruit and violet scents, along with a smoky element and a hint of cured tobacco. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering lively cassis, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors and a hint of dark chocolate. Closes very long and spicy, with a repeating cherry note and steadily building tannins. (JR)"

Domaine Auguste Clape of Cornas

About Domaine Auguste Clape

Auguste Clape is a name synonymous with the rich and powerful wines of Cornas, a true legend among winemakers with some of the finest vineyard holdings in the entire village. Today, Auguste's son Pierre-Marie and grandson Olivier are continuing the legacy, carrying on the winemaking traditions that Robert Parker has deemed "the reference point for the appellation" (WA).

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.
