Domaine A. Clape  2016

RRP £142

Not the cleanest on the nose – a touch of ethyl acetate – but has good weight of fruit in the mouth, intense and dark, with massy, fibrous tannins. There’s a freshness to the blackberry fruit here, and a grain to the texture. A resolutely old-fashioned style that should be interesting in time. It builds on the finish.
