“A very serious vintage but not as forbidding as 2010 and 2005” is how Pierre-Marie Clape and his son Olivier described 2015 to me. They caution that the wines really deserve patience before they can fully express their inherent complexity, “especially because the fruit is so expressive and needs to calm down,” according to Olivier. “But you probably won’t regret opening them too young, which you did with the ‘05s and the ‘10s, which are still closed.” He followed up by generalizing that “the wines are rich but vibrant, so in a style that people who like elegant wines are going to enjoy even though they’re quite substantial.” The Clape 2015s are indeed deeply concentrated wines and while I agree with the Clapes’ assertion that they will hold appeal for most any Rhône lover, it’s their elegant 2016s, which I also tasted from casks here in their very primary stages, that should really please those who prize elegance in their Cornas. More to follow as those wines mature, of course. - Josh Raynolds, April 2017, Vinous

Details

Some of the most singular wines in the world emerge from the dark, barely-lit cellars of Pierre-Marie Clape and his son, Olivier. This is a bastion of traditional winemaking and these wines are not destemmed, see long fermentations, and are aged in ancient barrels and casks. As Robert Parker wrote at one time, “There is nothing wrong with a case of Clape!” I agree wholeheartedly! - Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
