Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009
Editorial Reviews for Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Fleshy, lightly sweet red fruit, herb tones, little red licorice. Rather soft on the palate with fully resolved tannins and nice acid. A bit light with a nice mineral aspect on the back end, then it frays just a touch finishing with decent length and some chocolate notes. Quite aromatic, fleshy, round and very giving with a nice green spice thing on the finale. 87pts
Big nose of blackberry and dark cherry. A rather new world style, with notes of blackberry/cherry/licorice, good gripping tannins, and a bit of black pepper on the finish. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre.
Bright red berries on the nose. Complex but ready to drink.
Liked this for $13. Guess I'm the new world, new wine type. Looking forward to my next bout with the flu
Dense viscous mouth-filling goodness.
Heavy alcohol until the wine had a chance to breathe. Much better on day 2.
As per previous note, this wine really needs time to breathe. I highly recommend decanting, actually. Heavy alcohol and tannins, overshadowing the blackberry fruit and terrior. Good - 83 points.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Counoise aged in old small barrels) exhibits delicious notes of sweet cherries, mulberries, tobacco leaf, licorice and spice box.

For example, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape. This is a gloriously opulent, voluptuously textured, opaque ruby/purple Chateauneuf du Pape with loads of grilled meat, charcoal and roasted herbs as well as blackberry and black currant fruit.

Autard’s quasi-modern-styled offering is the dense plum/purple-colored 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde, a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah from relatively old vines (60 plus years) that sees some new oak barrels. However, the 2009 shows only subtle evidence of vanillin and toast. It is a seductive, full-bodied, opulent effort displaying notes of caramelized red and black fruits, herbs, licorice and a hint of ink. This full-bodied, rich 2009 is ideal for drinking over the next 12+ years.
This has good ripeness for the vintage, with juicy plum and blackberry fruit laced with mesquite and graphite notes. Fine length. Drink now.
This offers lots of aromatic spice, mulled raspberry and melted licorice notes, laced with black tea and sweet spice hints. Features lingering dark fruit on the finish. Drink now through 2012.
Full ruby. Pungent, oak-spiced aromas of dark berry liqueur, cola, licorice and incense. Fleshy and ripe on entry, then brighter and more animated in the mid-palate, showing impressive depth and energy to its cassis and blueberry flavors. This seductive, fleshy, distinctly modern wine finishes very long and smooth, with lingering vanilla and spice notes.
Fresh, with sweet dark cherry and bramble flavors followed by notes of mocha and toast on the finish. Drink now.
