Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas 2011

99.00

 

Monsieur Clape’s Cornas is systematically considered the best in the appellation, constantly attaining the most amazing levels of excellence. rich complex aromas of dried fruits, liquorice, spice and pepper. The sheer power and concentration of the wine on the palate is overwhelming. The attack is sensational, followed with an incredible volume of extract that saturates the palate in rich, concentrated fruity tannins that last through a magnificently long, stunning finish.

These wines need at least 5 or 6 years in bottle before they will open up, but are at their best after 10 years.

About This Wine...

 

“Dark crimson, youthful colour. The sort of aroma you want to linger over before you put the wine in your mouth – pure dark-red fruit, a tiny note of oak sweetness (spice/coconut) that adds complexity rather than overwhelming the fruit and the place of origin. Dark and savoury on the palate, hint of smoky char, firm but super-fine tannins. Not ready yet but with terrific potential. Drink 2017 – 2025.”

17/20 Jancis Robinson 2015

 

“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.”

95/100 Robert Parker 2014
