(10-2014) Densely packed, with fine, juicy acidity running throughout, this sports intense boysenberry and raspberry fruit along with plenty of bramble, black pepper and chalk notes, grounded in terroir and exhibiting good cut. Shows a lovely echo of tar and chestnut leaf through the finish. Best from 2016 through 2029.

(10-2014) Starting with his 2011 Cornas, it’s a rocking wine in the vintage that’s still showing every bit as well as it did on release. Massive minerality, violets, bloody meat and sweet blackcurrant and black raspberry-like fruit all emerge here, and it’s fabulously textured and silky on the palate. It will be interesting to see if this ever shuts down, but right now, it’s a great drink. If you have multiple bottles, give one a try.

Clape A.

The Domaine Auguste Clape is a reference in the Cornas appellation. Located in the southern part of the Rhone Valley, the red wines are 100% Syrah. The Cornas of Auguste Clape are famous for their straight, distinguished and sober character. Raised during 2 years in concrete vats then in ancient casks, they are wines carved for the guard. Since 1955, the Domaine Auguste Clape raises its wines to the highest level including adopting a reasoned work of the vine. Pierre-Marie Clape, son of Augustus, who has worked for the Tempier and Le Vieux Télégraphe estates, has been with the estate since 1988. In 2002, he was joined by his own son Olivier.


Only 2 vintages are produced: Cornas with vines from 40 to 90 years old and Renaissance with younger vines.


Area: 8.8 ha; Production: 30,000 bottles / year; Average age of the vines: 45 years; Red grape varieties: Syrah; White grape varieties: Roussanne, Marsanne
