Domaine Paul Autard Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby-red. Remarkably expressive bouquet of musky plum, cherry, lavender, rose oil and cured tobacco. Dense and chewy, with deeply concentrated cherry and dark berry flavors; exotic spice notes build with air. Finishes impressively deep and rich, with firm tannins supporting the intense cherry/berry fruit. Serious stuff, and built for the long haul.

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.

Heavy alcohol until the wine had a chance to breathe. Much better on day 2.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde is undeniably the best wine Autard has made since the 1998 rendition of this cuvee. This got a big "Wow!" when I smelled it. A stunning nose of black truffles, melted licorice, blackberries, and sweet ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Autard, Paul Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde 750ml
