Similarly colored yet both deeper and richer the 2010 Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée La Cote Ronde is serious stuff. A blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah that spent 16 months in barrel it boasts knockout aromas of blackberry and black currant styled fruits lead pencil garrigue and chalky minerality on the nose. Fabulously concentrated rich and textured yet also light on the palate perfectly balanced and with an overall elegant feel it too needed a full day to unwind and will have upwards of 15-20 years or more of prime drinking.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2012
A sensational effort the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde reveals a touch of toasty oak in the aromatics but it is beautifully integrated with kirsch roasted Provencal herb espresso and black currant aromas... A sensational effort the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde reveals a touch of toasty oak in the aromatics but it is beautifully integrated with kirsch roasted Provencal herb espresso and black currant aromas. This full-throttle masculine and rich wine possesses sweet tannins as well as good integration of structure and acidity. It is built for the long haul yet can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for two decades.

This isn't shy with flashy mocha toasted raisin cinnamon and pastis aromas rushing forth but there's sleek integrated structure and solid layers of linzer torte plum pâte de fruit and bramble to fill it out. A tarry edge...

A tarry edge lingers on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2026. -JM

91+ Opaque purple. Ripe, smoke-accented aromas of blueberry, cassis, violet and vanilla, with a peppery topnote. Lush, deeply pitched dark fruit flavors pick up a bitter chocolate nuance in the glass, along with a hint... 91+ Opaque purple. Ripe, smoke-accented aromas of blueberry, cassis, violet and vanilla, with a peppery topnote. Lush, deeply pitched dark fruit flavors pick up a bitter chocolate nuance in the glass, along with a hint of licorice. Dusty tannins build with air and add firm grip to a long, spicy finish. This wine possesses strong material but needs some time to stretch out. -- Josh Raynolds
