  • A wonderful expression of this domain’s yellow Syrah, the Renaissance cuvée presents an intense garnet robe and harbours a complex bouquet; ripe fruit aromas are punctuated with toasted, floral and spiced notes and enveloped in fine-grained tannins.

    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.
