While new oak could tend to overpower a more moderately concentrated vintage like 2018, this is nicely done and leads with beautiful black raspberry and cassis fruit as well as notes of toasted bread, vanilla bean, dried flowers, and a kiss of candied orange. With terrific purity, full-bodied richness, and silky tannins, it’s already drinking brilliantly yet should evolve for 10-15 years. I love its balance and purity, and it’s up with the top wines in the vintage.

Packed but defined, with a graphite spine through the finish and well-embedded acidity stretching it all out. Best from 2024 through 2038. 200 cases made, 40 cases imported. — JM

Deeply perfumed, oak-spiced aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, cherry cola and candied flowers expand with aeration. Palate-coating black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and boysenberry flavors show impressive energy for their depth. Finishes extremely long and smoky, with solid, spicy thrust, repeating florality and youthfully chewy tannins that add shape and final grip. -- Josh Raynolds

The wine is no shy little sister. Big, rich, powerful and full-bodied, with a blast of fruit and oak on the palate, this is going take some cellaring for all the parts to come together. Made from an equal blend of Grenache and Syrah, the wine is aged in 100% new, French oak barrels 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.. 92 Points Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2018&wine=Domaine%20Paul%20Autard%20Chateauneuf-du-Pape%20Cuvee%20Juline

It's inky in hue, with smoky nuances but better integration of oak than in the Cuvée la Cote Ronde and immensely concentrated notes of ripe black cherries, plums and salted licorice. Full-bodied and intense, it's particularly tannic, but could use a couple of years to just mellow a bit—for the volume to go from, say, 11 down to 9 or so.- JC
