2007 Paul Autard "Cuvée Juline" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1050775 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (JM) Inner quote mark (8/2009)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The modern styled 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Juline (mostly Grenache vinified and aged in new barrels) has elegant yet rich and decadent notes of cassis, currants, toasted spice and sweet oak. Full-bodied, perfectly balanced and layered, it has plenty of integrated oak but has a beautifully Provencal, lengthy style that will keep it drinking nicely... (JD) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very dark crimson – almost brooding. Sample is oxidising, but there is clearly a whole lot going on here. Very grown-up and multi-layered. Lots of sweet black cherries, but also some finesse and minerality. Very interesting wine. Very sophisticated. Clean, clear-cut finish that persists quite a while. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2008)


Outer quote mark Inky purple. Lavishly oak-spiced aromas of cassis, blackberry jam and kirsch Cherry-vanilla and cola flavors are round and sweet, with soft tannins adding structure. Impresses with power if not finesse, finishing with strong oak spice and dark berry preserve flavor. Defiantly modern: I wonder how long it will take for the fruit to crawl out from under the assertive oak. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2009)

K&L Notes

94+ points, Robert Parker - Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Juline is a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah that is fermented and aged in new oak. While very modern in orientation, given the huge concentration and fruit character in this vintage, this philosophy of winemaking and upbringing works far better in 2007 than it did in 2008. However, readers should be prepared for a wine that falls outside the normal parameters of Chateauneuf du Pape. It reveals plenty of vanillin, blackberry and cassis fruit intertwined with hints of espresso roast and smoke, deep, concentrated, full-bodied flavors, and lots of upside potential." (10/2009)
