2003 Paul Autard "Cuvée La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1204416 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautifully pure blackberry and raspberry fruit is woven with toast, grilled herb and tar flavors, all buttressed with a firm, tannic spine. Concentrated, long, chewy finish opens in the glass to show an elegant side as well. Should age wonderfully. (JM) Inner quote mark (9/2005)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Spicy and energetic on the nose, with vibrant blackberry, cherry and sweet floral aromas. This displays more energy and vivacity than the 2004 version today. Sweet, velvety and round, with lush dark berry, mocha and coffee flavors that build and expand through the finish. A serious wine that should age extremely well. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2006)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dense, rich, and showing the tell-tale toasty new oak is the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cote Ronde. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, modern-styled with loads of fruit, and slightly better integrated oak than the 2004 with a deep ruby/plum purple color and a spicy, heady finish. It should drink well for at least 10 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2006)
