About

The Domaine Auguste Clape is the reference in Cornas. This is mainly due to the work of Auguste Clape who actively participated to the resurrection of the appellation in the last decades. The Clape wines are always highly rated by critics and considered to be some of the best Syrah on earth.

“…The Clape wines has been brilliant since I began visiting the estate over 30 years ago…” -ROBERT PARKER


Tasting Notes

I tasted four different components of the 2020 Cornas from foudre. From 40-year-old vines in La Côte, a medium to full-bodied sample with attractive menthol, red plum and violet notes, ample structure but a bit short (92 - 94). From 50- to 60-year-old vines in La Sabarotte, an earthier, more savory example, with a rich, velvety texture and crisp acids (93 - 95). From 60- to 70-year-old vines in La Côte, a wine that seems to have it all: intense cassis, crushed stone, licorice and black olives, plus amazing richness and length (97 - 99). And finally, from old vines in Reynard, a breathtaking, hauntingly floral rendition marked by purple raspberries and fantastic concentration (98 - 100). The blend should be terrific.
