Domaine Auguste Clape

Pierre-Marie now makes the wine at this domaine, an established leader in the appellation. The winemaking is fiercely traditional and no new wood is used whatsoever. However, any stems retained during vinification are always fully ripened and the the wines are supple with harmonious tannin and fruit, balanced and very refined. Vines that date from the 1890s contribute to the impressive quality. Cuvée Renaissance is a second wine, made to help maintain the quality of the Cornas. Inevitably from younger vines, it lacks the weight and power of the grand vin. Both the spicy Côtes du Rhône red and Saint-Péray offer good value and there is also an IGP Syrah, Le Vin des Amis.
