Clape's 1997 Cornas flirts with an outstanding rating. The wine boasts a saturated purple color, as well as a sweet, blackberry-scented nose with violets, tar, and truffle-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, excellent purity, and light to moderate tannin, this is an atypically soft, expansive, forward Cornas that should drink well when released, and keep for a decade or more.
