Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Cornas are off the charts. For example, the black/purple-colored 2009 Cornas Renaissance smells like a butcher shop with loads of bloody meat, a hint of tomato confit, smoky charcoal embers and scorched earth. It possesses sweet tannins, an opulent, voluptuous texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a tremendous finish. Surprisingly accessible, it will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for 20-25 years. 93 pointsRobert Parker, Wine Advocate*very limited quantity*

Features a racy core of red currant, damson plum and blackberry fruit stitched with chalky tannins and backed by warm stone and olive pit notes on the finish. Enlivened with brisk acidity, this is approachable now, but improves with brief cellaring. ... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Auguste Clape Cornas Renaissance 750ml
