  • Auguste Clape’s Cornas is one of the best productions of the appellation, possessing richness, depth, and wonderful ageing potential. Whole bunch fermentation and ageing in old foudres means it can preserve the sobriety of the terroir of Cornas.

    The Clape family produce elegant wines that are considered a leading light in the Cornas appellation. Today, Pierre Clape, with the help of his son Olivier, cultivates 5 hectares of terraced vines on granitic slopes that can reach gradients of up to 60%, making them a difficult terroir to work with. Vinifications are a ‘hands off’ affair and take place on a parcel by parcel basis according to traditional methods that respect the different ages of the vines.
