Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas 2012

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.
