I love Clape and this wine is impressive for what it is, but it’s not my style. For me, it’s slightly oxidized just to the point of not being refreshing. Then again, even with low acidity, it manages to linger and linger on the palate. For the nose, nuts and dried white flowers galore.

Great marriage of freshness and mouthfeel, this wine has plenty of zip to give lift without sacrificing its mineral and textural depths. Not as fat as I was expecting to be. Viscous, yes, but on a shorter wavelength than other N. Rhône whites. Nose is stone fruit blossoms, apricot, nuts, lees, radish, leaves and crushed rocks. Palate quince, green pineapple, orange, radish spice and phenolic. Just a slight inclination of oxidation.

Light gold. Nose of orange peel, melons. Full bodied with oily texture. Acidity keeps it from being fat/flabby. Citrus, honeycomb on palate. Mineral finish with hint of white flowers.
