Domaine Clape’s reputation for producing wines of power and class has been solidified for decades. Their terraced vineyards lay scattered across the Rhone and are rooted in the region’s signature granitic soils. Auguste helped put the village of Cornas back on the map by farming with care and making wines of polish and detail, Clape became a one word badge of iconic quality.
Lithe and focused, Le Vin des Amis is just as it sounds: an irresistible charmer to be shared among good friends. Dark but not to brooding, violet floral perfume and wild dark fruit that glides over the palate like velvet. Spice and chew that you expect from Syrah but a beautiful and intricate palate thats quite lively.
This is a benchmark Domaine on a budget, and is always so so good.
