2018 Auguste Clape Cornas - 750ml
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 97 Points
Bottled late in 2020, the 2018 Cornas is another exceptional vintage for this cuvee, drawn from the family's older vines, largely in the lieux-dits of La Cote, Sabarotte and Reynard. Yes, it's from a hot, sunny vintage, it's rich and ripe, with plenty of red plum fruit up front, but there's a solid underpinning of crushed stone to provide balance. Full-bodied and velvety in feel in the mouth, it lingers elegantly on the lengthy finish. Complete, balanced and fine. (1/2021)
James Suckling- 97 Points
Remarkably fresh nose, considering that August 2018 was so hot in the Rhone. Stunning aromas of bitter chocolate and perfectly ripe wild blackberries. I love the generous but not expansive body, where there’s a sensational interplay of fine tannins and mineral freshness that drive the very long and exciting finish. (10/2021)
