Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Autard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps in making Chateauneuf du Pape, Jean-Paul Autard is a classic artisan French vigneron and one who is blessed with the talent to make exceptional wines. Everything Jean-Paul does shows a respect for tradition, terroir and, above all, quality. His 30ha are split half and half between Chateauneuf and some very superior Cotes du Rhone vineyards which lie just over the appellation border. He is without doubt one of the rising stars of the Rhone. This wonderful white blend is round and fat, with lovely almond and orchard fruit nuances of peach and pear. On the finish there is a detectable nuttiness and length. This blend is a fantastic wine to share at a dinner party, or when relaxing with friends, try pairing with asian cuisine, or accompanying walnut and almond cake for brilliant results.
