The outstanding 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cote Ronde has the oak well-concealed beneath a cascade of black fruits. An equal part blend of Grenache and Syrah from 60-year-old vines (with the Syrah enjoying malolactic fermentation in barrel and aging in new oak), this wine displays plenty of licorice, creme de cassis, blackberry, subtle spice and a heady dosage of Provencal herbs in a full-bodied, thick, juicy style that never loses its place of origin despite the modern oak treatment. Full-bodied and powerful, it comes close to rivaling the best La Cote Ronde I have tasted to date, the 2007. It will be best drunk over the next 10ndash;15 years.
Whew mdash; what a long-winded title for a Grenache-based field blend! The quintessential red blend, this elegant yet powerful wine is no muddy puddle of grapes. Stylistically, I am reminded of Ridge wineryrsquo;s Zinfandel blends; like Zinfandel, Grenache provides heady liqueur aspects, while the leading minor players mdash; Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault mdash; season the base with black spice, fresh herbs, and mineral. Densely packed with sultry dark cherry fruit, this Autard is delicious now, but firm tannins suggest aging may reward. Honestly, these are the greatest all-round wines in the worldhellip; hmmmhellip; I think Irsquo;ll change my name to Paula Autard.
The 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape la Cote Ronde exhibits aromas of smoked Provenccedil;al herbs, black cherry an berry fruit, an unctuous texture, and a lush, complex, medium to full-bodied style with notes of mincemeat. With outstanding concentration and purity as well as an upfront style, it should be drunk over the next 12ndash;14 years.
Dense, rich, and showing the tell-tale toasty new oak is the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cote Ronde. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, modern-styled with loads of fruit, and slightly better integrated oak than the 2004 with a deep ruby/plum purple color and a spicy, heady finish. It should drink well for at least 10 years.
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. Lush, round and medium to full-bodied, it is ideal for... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Paul Autard Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
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. Deep, chewy a... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Paul Autard Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
Deep red. Spicy and energetic on the nose, with vibrant blackberry, cherry and sweet floral aromas. This displays more energy and vivacity than the 2004 version today. Sweet, velvety and round, with lush dark berry, mocha and coffee flavors that build and expand through the finish. A serious wine that should age extremely well.
Aged in one to two years old oak barrel. A first cull by the harves ter at the moment of harvest, and another cull prior to a complete égrappage; maceration for 20 to 30 days, in pigeage vats.
500 cases produced.
