- 2001 Domaine Auguste Clape Cornas - France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Cornas (4/25/2006)
Dark red. A typical Cornas scent of black pepper, bacon fat, red berries and rock. The palate is big, tough and tannic, with fine acidity also. Very nice at first, but I started getting some pruny and raisiny scents the longer it was open.... Has Clape also gone over to the dark side? Or am I just becoming too sensitive to spoofulation?

I did like this, but I would have hoped (sensitive eyes: look away) for a steaming chunk of turd in my glass: ubi rusticity?
