Domaine Auguste Clape Côtes-du-Rhône

This is no ordinary CdR. In the Rhône appellation of Cornas there is none more famous than Clape and his just-landed CdR commands respect. Cellar it, decant it and serve it with robust main course fare. Remarkably youthful, with exotic spice, pepper, coal, graphite and mouth-coating tannins.
