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.

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

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.

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.
