The Thief

Auguste Clape Cuvée Renaissance 2019

Auguste Clape Cuvée Renaissance 2019

Winemaker Notes

Made from the domaine's younger vines, Renaissance showcases top terroirs across the Cornas appellation in a slightly more accessible way than Clape's flagship bottling. Given the same treatment—vinified naturally with whole clusters and aged in old foudresfor nearly two years before being bottled unfiltered—it can be enjoyed in its youth, although it certainly has the structure to age for many years. Replete with inky black fruit, black olive, and gamey overtones, this Syrah is the real deal from one of the best in the game.

Even the "early-drinking" 2019 Cornas Renaissance needs some time in the cellar. It's full-bodied, dense and tannic, with notes of horse liniment and cassis, plus savory undertones of black olive. Rich, velvety textured and long on the finish, it looks to be a solid effort.
