Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas Renaissance 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"A dark, chewy style, with a nice beefy edge to the black currant, sage, roasted chestnut and iron notes. The long finish is framed by a nice bittersweet cocoa note. Rock solid. Best from 2009 through 2015...91." WS 1/08

Just bursting with intense fruitiness and a touch of oaken spice this is simple and modern on the nose. A touch soft in the mouth and even loose this seems both over-cropped and over-extracted with a very industrial feel that combines a hollow midpalate with somewhat austere tannins. With time this gains a bit of elegance but really only because it lacks stuffing though what fruit there is nice, ripe and sweet. Simple and ordinary . 86pts

Paid $59.95 at Kermit Lynch in Berkeley several years ago and am a bit disappointed. A bit austere and leaves kind of slight chalky feel in my mouth, although it's a lovely color. Maybe should have aged a little longer? No, I don't think that would help. I'm thinking maybe my wine cellar is too warm? We had several power outages 2 summers ago when PG&E transformers near my house blew up. Or maybe it's just mediocre no matter what? Served it with a Scandinavian meat turnover topped with creme fraiche and chutney and a salad. Wine was adequate, but certainly not worth the price.
