Domaine Paul Autard

Domaine Paul Autard
Jean-Paul Autard carries on the tradition established by Paul Autard when he founded the domaine in the village of Courthezon in the 1970's. Autard has 26 hectares of vines, of which 12 are in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and 14 in Cotes-du-Rhone (located at the border of the Chateauneuf appellation in Courthezon.) The aging cellar is a massive, vaulted cave cut into sandstone rock, housing the domaine’s barriques. The Autard’s feel privileged to have inherited a domaine in which the plantations of different cepages are perfectly adapted to the soil types -- ranging from gallets roulets, pebble and clay, and sandy-clay -- in their various parcels. They aim to get the most out of each variety by vinifying separately and then blending judiciously. The grapes are destalked and fermentation takes place in stainless steel cuves. After the malolactic fermentation, the wines are transferred to barriques for aging, about one third of which are new. The Autard’s have attained international acclaim for their high quality wines and were selected for inclusion by Eric Mancio, sommelier at Restaurant Guy Savoy in Paris, in his book on the finest domaines of the Rhone valley.
