Autard Chateauneuf du Pape 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

'Top 100 Wine of 2005 (#81)' and 92 points Wine Spectator: Nearly candied up front, with a hard shell around the black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors, but sweet mocha, spice and mineral notes emerge in the end, where fine-grained tannins carry the finish. A beauty that should develop nicely. Best from 2008 through 2020. (8/31/05)
