Super fresh and composed with some slate, iodine and spiced red plum fruits. The palate has a very sleek, smooth and fine core, nicely phrased tannins, elegant, focused. Best from 2022.

Highly perfumed aromas of red and blue fruit preserves, licorice, olive paste and peony are complemented by a sexy floral overtone. Stains the palate with intense, mineral-accented black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors, while a floral pastille nuance gains strength with air. Velvety, even tannins shape an impressively long, floral finish that shows outstanding clarity and dark fruit thrust. -- Josh Raynolds

(91 - 94)I tasted from several foudres earmarked for the 2016 Cornas Renaissance. All showed good ripeness and richness allied to ample fruit and balanced tannins. -JC

It’s a wild, exotic Cornas (and that’s Clape) that has full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, and building tannins. It’s certainly more approachable than the grand vin, yet it needs a solid 4-5 years of bottle age to be drinkable.
