91-93+ WA - Paul Autard Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Juline 2009 (750ML)
Even the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Juline seems to work well in this vintage. The oak is there, but the wine certainly displays plenty of Chateauneuf du Pape typicity. Loads of licorice as well as concentrated black cherry and black currant notes are present in a full-bodied, dense, chewy, heady style. Drink it over the next decade.

I was surprised that Paul Autard chose to make all three of his cuvees in 2008, but when you taste the wines out of bottle, you can see how successful this estate was. 91-93+WA
