Awesome vintage and at a great point in its evolution. Long animalistic syrah, game, cigarette ash, rabbit fur, background of black pepper, smooth rounded tannin. Great bouquet jumping out, light on palate

Lovely Cornas. Very similar in quality to the 2000 Clape flagship bottling. Feral blue fruits, bramble and herbs.

Brooding. Black olives and licorice, cola, black pepper and (maybe) some dark cherry. Ready to drink, hopefully by me.

RIP Auguste Clape Needed about an hour in the decanter to open up but eventually showed beautiful notes of violets, chalk, blue fruit and spice. Still young and should age very gracefully.

A total pup. Dark fruits, meat, white pepper and hints of Brett. Clean for Clape but finding myself to hate brett more and more. Firm, chalky tannins.

Took about half an hour to really start showing its stuff, but then it was game on.

Super tough. Spicy, up-front tannins. Complex but really flatly flavorful. Sounds dumb, but just really great red flavor.
