Domaine Clape Cornas 'Renaissance' 2011

Fruit for ‘Renaissance’ comes from two distinct vineyards in Cornas, giving way to a full-bodied wine of intense hue and pronounced aromatics. The 2011 palate shows a gorgeous balance between meaty red fruit and earth spice, thanks to 22 months of aging in oak; will age for decades.
