Domaine Auguste Clape Côtes du Rhône 2016

SKU 11377


The Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge, with it's rich purple Syrah colour, boasts a wonderfully intense bouquet of lush, ripe blackcurrents and spicy pepper. On the palate the wine is rich, smooth and full bodied with intense fruit and classic Syrah peppery flavours, reflecting perfectly the bouquet. The soft, round tannins are ever present giving rise to a very well polished balance and a superb long, elegant finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe 2016 Cotes du Rhone is essentially declassified Cornas, so it's entirely Syrah but from young vines. It combines tarry notes with cherry fruit and some earthy notes. It's medium-bodied, with firm, dusty tannins on the finish.
