Domaine Auguste Clape COTES DU RHONE ROUGE 2014
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 SpectatorDark in profile, with plum and blackberry notes studded with anise and tobacco details. A hot stone echo courses through the finish. Should open a bit more with modest cellaring. Drink now through 2019.
