In the world of wine, there are many good winegrowers. However, there are only a very select few who are truly great, and Auguste Clape will go down in history as one of the greats. A proud and uncompromising pioneer of fine winemaking in the Northern RhÃ´ne, his Syrahs from the cru of Cornas have earned their place among the most celebrated wines of France. What could be better than drinking one of the greatest crus of the Northern RhÃ´ne made by its greatest producer? Frankly, itâ€™s the Syrah against which all others are measured.
