No. The regular one. Did they make the Renaissance in 2002?

I think it will benefit from a couple more years, but considering Cornas's reputation this is IMO a short term wine. I think 1-3 years will soften the tannins without compromising anything else so that would be the time I'd leave it. Knowing Clape's reputation, I am sure they will last longer, but frankly I don't see it getting much more interesting after that. But what is fun about wine is that my guess to the wine's future could very well be totally wrong!
Sorry for not giving any proper answer, but I suck at telling the future.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
