For lovers of the Northern Rhone Auguste Clape needs zero introduction. Even those less familiar with the slopes along the river where Syrah reigns supreme have often heard the name. Clape is that important.

He almost single-handedly brought his home village of Cornas out of the old, négociant-centered model and into the estate-focused 21st Century. A former mayor of Cornas, his name is now synonymous with the best of what this village has to offer.

August sadly passed in 2018 after nearly fifty years of winemaking, leaving the iconic estate in the hands of his son and grandson.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"Intensely perfumed, mineral-driven dark fruit and violet scents, along with a smoky element and a hint of cured tobacco. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering lively cassis, cherry preserve and floral pastille flavors and a hint of dark chocolate. Closes very long and spicy, with a repeating cherry note and steadily building tannins." -Vinous

RP 94
"Even the "early-drinking" 2019 Cornas Renaissance needs some time in the cellar. It's full-bodied, dense and tannic, with notes of horse liniment and cassis, plus savory undertones of black olive. Rich, velvety textured and long on the finish, it looks to be a solid effort." -Robert Parker
