International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 167

Inky purple. Heady, complex aromas of black raspberry, potpourri, smoky minerals and Indian spices. Displays a riot of black and blue fruit flavors that show uncanny energy for their depth and power. Picks up exotic allspice and star anise nuances with air, along with a touch of salty olive. Finishes on an emphatic mineral note, with remarkable focus, thrust and length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 204

Eclipsing even the 2009, the 2010 Cornas achieved one of the highest natural alcohol levels (14%) ever recorded at Clape. This complex, inky/purple-colored effort boasts abundant notes of charcoal, licorice, blackberries and blueberries intermixed with a hint of scorched earth (or is it charcoal embers?), a full-bodied mouthfeel, a seamless personality and a crushed rock-like minerality. The tannins are so sweet it will be drinkable in 2-3 years, and should keep for 25 or more. It is a tour de force in what Syrah can achieve in this hallowed appellation. Kudos to the Clape family, especially Pierre-Marie.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

A rock-solid and well-built wine, with a frame of charcoal and tar around a core of dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit, revealing loads of tobacco, singed bay leaf and graphite notes in reserve. This should age beautifully, showing excellent range, character and definition.
