Domaine Clape Cornas 2013

I often forget that Auguste Clape was once the mayor of Cornas. Nice little bit of trivia. The reputation of Clape is huge despite only farming eight-or-so hectares of land in the northern Rhone Valley. That being said, what land they do hold, is primo, and the vines are typically old and low yielding. Whole bunch, natural fermentation occurs in concrete before the wines are transferred to foudre for their maturation. Classic stuff. The 2013 vintage was low key, late in harvest, loved by many a Rhone fancier despite being a bit unusual. This is a cracker.
