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 was one of them. Clape was viewed as a guardian of a traditional approach to winemaking but not bound by rules, both in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Quoting John Livingstone-Learmonth in his book, The Wines of the Northern Rhône,
“... he is one of the few growers I have ever met who succeeds in bridging the connection between man and nature … Belief, on the one hand, listening on the other. No closed walls. The true philosopher born of the exceptional opportunity that winemaking can confer.”
