 "Made from the domaine's younger vines, Renaissance showcases top terroirs across the Cornas appellation in a slightly more accessible way than Clape's flagship bottling. Given the same treatment—vinified naturally with whole clusters and aged in old foudres for nearly two years before being bottled unfiltered—it can be enjoyed in its youth, although it certainly has the structure to age for many years. Replete with inky black fruit, black olive, and gamey overtones, this Syrah is the real deal from one of the best in the game." - Importer Note

"The 2018 Cornas Renaissance shows less of the vintage's sunbaked character than you might expect, boasting floral notes and fresh red plum fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, silky in feel and even a touch crisp on the long finish. It should be reasonably long lived, drinking well through at least 2035." - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
