Presentation

Whenever Cornas comes to mind so does Clape. This is the most famous estate in Cornas…indeed it is the estate that single-handedly built a reputation for the whole appellation. This is a no-frills operation : no sign on the door, no fancy modern winery equipment, no new oak, no ‘reserve’ cuvées, just great vineyards and experienced, non-interventionist winemaking. Clape’s Cornas is deeply coloured, full-bodied, with a powerful tannic structure and great natural richness. Uncompromising when young, it develops surprising charm with age, as well as outstanding complexity and intensity. ‘Renaissance’, from younger vines, is similarly styled but reveals its charms quicker. Also of note here are the Côtes du Rhône and Vin de Table, wines of real character from vineyards at the foot of the Cornas hills.
