2013 Dom Paul Autard Cotes du Rhone

Whether it’s a domestic or international selection there are certain libations that resonant with all those who imbibe. For those with an appreciation for wine particular labels are welcoming friends of consistent satisfaction. Over the years the Glutton Household has regularly relied on the Domaine Paul Autard label to deliver an exceptionally high level of engaging red wines from the Rhone Valley in France and their 2013 Dom. Paul Autard Cotes du Rhone is no expection.

The 2013 vintage is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah with average age of the vines is 45 years. The result is a surprisingly engaging depth to the wine and exactly what a wine enthusiasts would expect from a mid level and affordable Cote du Rhone.

Here’s my complete review:

2013 Dom. Paul Autard Cotes du Rhone
Rudy red in color, the nose expresses a familiar layered Rhone construction with flavors of blackberries and spice from Grenache, rounded red fruits of over ripened strawberries and raspberries with earthiness from Syrah. Medium bodied the dominance of Grenache takes hold on the palate with the persuasive construction of fruit, tannins, and acidity. Finishes dry and begs for grilled or bbq meats.

Retails around $12-15 and recommended for Rhone enthusiasts and those seeks an engaging affordable red wine.
