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.

This got a big "Wow!" when I smelled it. A stunning nose of black truffles melted licorice blackberries and sweet cherries is followed by a multi-dimensional multi-layered full-bodied wine with tremendous power richness and a hint of barrique. One could say this is modern but the Provencal personality jumps from the glass of this meaty dense wine. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15+ years

Deep cherry and blackcurrant aromas with sexy anise incense and floral character expanding with air. Lush and sweet offering deep creme de cassis and bitter cherry flavors framed by supple tannins. Invitingly sweet and plush on the finish which echoes the cassis and licorice qualities. This is utterly seductive today.

Delivers a healthy dose of cocoa and toast before more typical black cherry currant tobacco and mineral notes fill out the back end. There's also lots of spice with a muscular chewy finish that needs some time to settle... Delivers a healthy dose of cocoa and toast before more typical black cherry currant tobacco and mineral notes fill out the back end. There's also lots of spice with a muscular chewy finish that needs some time to settle in. Best from 2008 through 2020. 850 cases imported.
