Auguste Clape, Cornas 2018

Few wine regions are as synonymous with a single producer as Cornas and Auguste Clape. There are a bunch of reasons for this, but it really boils down to the fact that Clape makes some of the best and most collectible syrah in the Northern Rhône, and thus the world. 

This is syrah at its most savory, deep, and old-school. It’s a wine that can age forever, but unlike most Cornas, it’s enjoyable when young as well. Clape is a reference-point producer, and the 2018 is an ideal representation of their classic style.

Here's what you should know about it:
  • This is 100% syrah from Clape’s oldest vines in Cornas in the Northern Rhône.
  • Along with making Cornas’ greatest wines, Auguste Clape served as the town’s mayor.
  • This is a rich and deeply savory red, with classic syrah flavors of dark fruits, pepper, and smoked meat.
Things we actually said...

“Most age-worthy? Most collectible? Most important? Clape is on the shortlist for them all.”
