‘Presented in three components: #1) La Côte: intense spice- and mineral-tinged black currant and bitter cherry scents and a sexy floral topnote. Sweet and focused in the mouth, displaying sappy black and blue fruit flavors and a strong jolt of peppery spices on the back half. #2) Sabarotte: more densely packed, offering highly perfumed black and blue fruit aromas. Shows impressive depth to the blueberry, cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors, which pick up a smoky nuance on the back half. Plays power off finesse in superb fashion. #3) old vines in Reynard: vibrant, mineral-laced dark fruit liqueur qualities on the nose and in the mouth. Completely stains the palate and displays remarkable persistence on the penetrating finish, which eventually leaves a sweet floral note.’ 94-97Pts – JOSH REYNOLDS –VINOUS.COM JUN ’18


‘Many layers of aromas, complex and spicy with a fragrant array of dark brambly berries, dark plums, dark chocolate. Spices and peppers, as well as graphite-like stony notes. There’s a silky core to the palate with extreme power, all delivered so precisely that appear light and elegant. Sweet spiced-fruit flavors run long and bright, exploding in a spectacular spicy finish. Spends two winters in the cellar to deliver finesse in terms of tannins. Barrel sample.’ 98-99Pts JAMESSUCKLING.COM AUG ’18

Details

The inconspicuous cellars of Northern Rhône icon, Domaine Auguste Clape lie on the main N86 road that runs through the village of Cornas, hidden away behind a grey garage door. Their Cornas vineyards (7.5 hectares total, comprised of 5.5 ha of AOC Cornas and 1 hectare each of Côtes du Rhône and Vin de Table) are planted on a variety of the best hillside sites in the appellation - Coteau de Tezier, Les Renards, Les Mazards and Chaillot. The Cornas vines are situated on classic crumbly granite based soils with a favourable clay content. The Côtes du Rhône comes from stony alluvial valley floor soils. - Importer Note
