2009 A. Clape - Cornas "Renaissance"
Wine Advocate: (92-94) Points
"The stunning 2009 Cornas Renaissance comes from moderately old vines. Aromas of new saddle leather, roasted meats, blackberries, cassis, tar and acacia flowers jump from the glass of this unctuously textured, super-rich, full-bodied Cornas. Some tannins are noticeable, but several years of cellaring will be beneficial, and this wine will drink well for 12-15 years. These are among the finest wines I have tasted from Clape in my 30+ years of visiting and tasting with first Auguste Clape and more recently his son, Pierre-Marie. Long a sleeper selection is Clape's Cotes du Rhone, a Syrah-based wine made just outside the Cornas appellation (at times, it may include some declassified Cornas material in the blend)." -Robert Parker
