Paul Autard Cuvee Cote Ronde Chateauneuf du Pape 2003
94  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 94 "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. Drink now through 2020. 1,200

Wine Spectator 91"There's nice drive to the cassis, blackberry and graphite flavors, with solid underlying notes of i garrigue n and tobacco. The structure is solid, but this is well-rounded for drinking now. Drink now through 2015. 1,200 cases imported. JM"

Wine Spectator 93 Highly Recommended "Delivers a healthy dose of cocoa and toast before more typical black cherry, currant, tobacco and mineral notes fill out the back end. There's also lots of spice, with a muscular, chewy finish that needs some time to settle in. Best from 2008 through 2020. 850

90  Stephen Tanzer 
Wine Spectator 90 "A good beam of black currant and raspberry, with tobacco, tar and graphite notes on the racy finish. Slightly firm and toasty now, but has solid concentration. Should open up nicely in the near term. Best from 2007 through 2016. 2,915 cases made. JM"  Stephen Tanzer 90 "Deep

Wine Spectator 92"Dark and rich, with layers of plum, hoisin sauce, graphite and cocoa, followed by a racy finish filled with mineral and fruit. Very lengthy, with ample structure for the longer haul. Best from 2008 through 2021. 450 cases imported. JM"

Paul Autard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Ronde 1999
92  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 92"The 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape is an atypically spicy (allspice, cinnamon), peppery, earthy effort with abundant quantities of black cherries. This easy to drink, medium-bodied, soft, round Chateauneuf should be consumed over the next 7-8 years. "
