2016 Domaine Paul Autard  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

The oak is the first thing you notice before moving on to layers of sweet ripe, opulently textured fruits. There is purity and weight here, with loads of fruits in the finish, along with wood. This will take time for everything to come together and for the oak to better integrate. The wine was made from a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. The wine was aged in 30% new, French oak barrels for 14 months.

2016 Domaine Paul Autard Cuvée Juline  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 94

Dark in color, the wine, made from equal parts Grenache and Syrah is big, powerful, dense and concentrated and oaky.. Following the color, you're easy finding incense, espresso, spice box and smoke to accompany all the dark, red fruits. There is sweetness and depth, as well as vibrancy and opulence. The fruit is perfectly ripe and the fruit is round and lush, but you have to move past the oak, letting the wine age before you get to the real beauty found here. The wine is aged in 100% new, French oak for 19 months before bottling. Juline, takes it name from the names of Jules Autard and Pauline Autard, the children of the Autard family is one of the most modern styled wines in all of Chateauneuf du Pape..

2015 Domaine Paul Autard  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Modern in style, with oaky notes out in front, the wine serves up vanilla, and espresso over its red fruits. Round and opulent in texture, the oak is fairly strong for a Grenache wine from Chateauneuf, so some tasters are going to have a hard time with it. The wine was made from a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. The wine was aged in 30% new, French oak for 14 months.

2015 Domaine Paul Autard Cuvée Juline  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Juline, takes it name from the names of Jules Autard and Pauline Autard, the children of the Autard family. The wine is one of the most modern styled Chateauneuf releases today. Fat, round and with a lot of oak in the nose, the oaky profile coexists with the fleshy, black raspberry and cherry tones, providing lush textures and a hedonistic approach. But there is a lot of wood going on here. The wine is made from blending of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache that is aged in 100% new, French oak for 19 months before bottling. Much of the oak is already taken up by the Syrah, but there is still a woody profile that is going to be an issue for many tasters. I'd let this rest for at least 5-7 years for the oak to better integrate.

Smoke, with espresso and vanilla notes are what you notice first before you get to the deep, red fruits. The wine is fat, round and forward, with density of fruit and flavor, along with a lot of oak, making this one of the most modern styled wines in Chateauneuf du Pape today. The wine was made from blending 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah.

2014 Domaine Paul Autard  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

With a kiss of oak, delivering a fresh espresso character coupled with fresh, juicy cherries, thyme and spice, the wine is round, open, polished and ready to go. This is a modern styled wine that is not for everyone.

Juline, takes it name from the names of Jules and Pauline Autard, is a modern styled Chateauneuf. Round, fat and forward, there is a distinctive oaky profile along with the fleshy, black raspberry and cherry tones. Lushly textured, the wine really works this year due to its blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache.

2012 Domaine Paul Autard Cuvée Juline  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

This is not a wine for everyone, due to its modern styled, obviously oaky character. Once past the oak, the blend of 50% Grenache and 50% is full bodied, concentrated, lush, round, fleshy and flashy, with a sweet, cherry, licorice and herb filled personality.

2010 Domaine Paul Autard Cuvée Juline  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 92

Very oaky, modern style of Chateauneuf du Pape that inspire discussion between modernists and traditionalists. The wine has a lot of depth, fat textures, richness and ripe fruits and a real lush sensation. If the oaky, espresso notes integrate the score should go up. If they persist, my score would drop as I do not really like too much oak in Grenache driven wines.

2009 Domaine Paul Autard  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 90

Forward, open and ready for drinking, the wine is soft, round and delivers a ripe, sweet, kirsch, black raspberry, thyme, smoke and spicy taste. This is not a wine to lay down for much more aging.

Modern, oaky, round, fat, lush, sweet and packed with ripe kirsch, licorice, smoke and cherry notes. Concentrated and made for pleasure, the modern style of this wine is going to please some people a lot more than others.
