    ($70) Bright ruby-red. Superripe, expressive aromas of dark berries, black olive tapenade, gunflint and dark chocolate. Fleshy and sweet, with flavors of blackberry, dried herbs, black olive, pepper and smoke. Very much a wine from granitic soil; conveys a strong impression of noble rusticity. Finishes very long, with big, chewy tannins and late notes of dried herbs, olive and black pepper. Has the material to reward a decade or more of cellaring, but this is also less austere in its youth than most recent vintages of Clape Cornas. I underrated this wine a year ago, although at the time I tasted it in its several components. (Kermit Lynch, Berkeley, CA; Europvin/Christopher Cannan Selections, Bordeaux, France)

    100% Syrah, granite soil, 30-38 hl/ha yield, 22 months ageing in oak foudres, bottled without filtration, light fining, 2.8 g/l acidity, 3.8 pH.Strange slightly rubbery aromas, then opening up to meaty marmite (yeast extract), though also a little stemmy. Firm, thick tannins and fine acidity. Moderate length.ÿ (JH)

    A blockbuster, and potentially the finest wine produced at this estate in four or five years, the inky-colored 2001 Cornas exhibits aromas of white flowers, melted licorice, sweet creme de cassis, blackberries, and blueberries. Profoundly concentrated and full-bodied, this jammy, thick Cornas possesses copious tannin, but it is largely obscured by the wealth of fruit and glycerin. It should turn out to be one of Clape's greatest efforts.
