2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Paul Autard "Cuvée Juline" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1045028

95-97 points Robert Parker: "A blend of barrel-aged Grenache and Syrah, the 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Juline is fabulous. My first note was “wow!,” and that was after tasting some truly great 2007s. Inky/ruby/purple-tinged with a rich, sumptuous bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, incense, licorice, and subtle smoke, this is a powerful, multilayered Châteauneuf boasting admirable purity, stunning intensity, and a finish that lasts over a minute. A remarkable cuvee, it should be one of the monumental wines of the vintage after sufficient time in the bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025+." (10/08) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Shows lots of exotic braised fig, black tea, roasted mesquite, incense and bittersweet cocoa notes, with a core of black cherry and raspberry fruit in reserve. The long, flashy finish lets pastis and Black Forest cake notes emerge. This has some toast to absorb, but it’s all there. Best from 2010 through 2025."-WS Insider May 20, 2009. ETA Fall of 2009.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
