ratings pedigree (past vintages):
The tannins are magnificently ripe and sweet and are buried in the opulently ripe fruit. The wine has tremendous depth, power, and richness, with aromas and flavors of violets, black-berry, cassis and cherry fruits, espresso, and spices. It finishes with great length and lingering, mouth-coating flavors. All of these elements (and more) and framed in a very balanced, elegant, supple package, which is the hallmark of the Autard house style.
The Juline is a blend of 50% each Grenache and Syrah, with a quality of opulence and richness that derives from the unique way it is vinified in open, horizontal barrels with pigeage by hand. It is a unforgettable wine.
"I have often thought the Cuvee Juline (a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah aged in new oak) was pushing the modern philosophy a little too far, but I must say that the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Juline has turned out far better than I thought it would. It is unquestionably made in a modern style, but the wine's purity and good integration of oak, acidity and tannin are well-done. This full-bodied, rich, concentrated, pure, authentic tasting Chateauneuf du Pape should drink nicely for two decades. "
The Wine Advocate
"Bright purple. A heady, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark fruit preserves, vanilla, sandalwood and candied flowers. Creamy and seamless on the palate, offering intense blueberry and cassis flavors and a zesty blast of smoky minerals. Rich but lively, with outstanding finishing clarity and spiciness.
