  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    Clape's 1997 Cornas flirts with an outstanding rating. The wine boasts a saturated purple color, as well as a sweet, blackberry-scented nose with violets, tar, and truffle-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, excellent purity, and light to moderate tannin, this is an atypically soft, expansive, forward Cornas that should drink well when released, and keep for a decade or more.

    Full ruby-red. Roasted currant, black cherry, coffee, garrigue and iron scents on the nose, with a distinct note of confiture. Bright and spicy, with smoke, mocha and licorice nuances complementing its currant flavor. Tannins are a bit tough, though, reflecting the moderate ripeness of the skins in '97. Will need patience.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Terroir-driven in its polish and concentration, this clean Rhone-grown Syrah tastes smooth, while a mineral component suggests the good terroir at play on the superb finish. It's a bit woody for now, but this is a ripe red, just needing time.
