Autard Chateauneuf du Pape 2007

Member Review by chapspot:

This big guy gives hedonistic pleasure. Beautifully balanced with understated acid and tannin. It probably will age gracefully but no sin in pulling the cork now to enjoy the forward fruit. Although 14½% alcohol there is no trace of hotness. We had with beef brisket and it was a marriage made in heaven. May be even better tomorrow.

This delivers a very large core of crushed currant, plum and blackberry fruit, all held in check by hints of maduro tobacco, bittersweet ganache, black tea and graphite. The long finish has ample grip, lending further length and definition to the impressive range of fruit. Best from 2010 through 2025.

The 2003 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape is a big, fruity, tasty wine. quite soft, it will certainly require consumption over the next 4ndash;7 years. It is elegant, attractively plump, with plenty of smoky herbs intermixed with black cherry notes and a bit of licorice and earth.

The opaque ruby/purple-colored 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape offers up beautiful, sweet black raspberry and kirsch fruit, tremendous opulence, and a sexy, gamy character. Layered, sumptuous, and long in the mouth with excellent purity and freshness, it should drink effortlessly for 10andndash;15 years.

Jean-Paul Autard is fast becoming one of the best-known winemakers in Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. His rsquo;03 is a blend of 60 percent Grenache and 30 percent Syrah, with some Mourvegrave;dre and Counoise. In 2000, Autard replaced his old foudres with small barriques to help preserve more fruit detail. This traditional-style Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape sees only about 5 percent new oak.
