Lot #439. Auguste Clape Cornas 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Rhône, Cornas.
Score: 91 RP.
"Clape's 1990 Cornas is outstanding. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up rich, ripe aromas of black fruits, licorice, and spices. Superconcentrated, with a full-bodied, highly extracted, mouth-filling taste, this example of Cornas possesses moderate tannin, adequate acidity, and a smashingly long finish. It is also relatively refined for a Cornas, displaying no signs of the rustic tannin or funky, earthy smells many Cornas can possess. Although it can be drunk now, I would recommend waiting . . ." Rhône Book, Dec 1996
Provenance: The Dominion Cellar
Notes: 3cm, slightly recessed cork, nicked, scuffed, and lightly stained label.
