Good value. Big tannin, structure and meat body.

I'm revisiting this on the third day, it's still lovely and fresh—Paul Autard's basic Côtes du Rhône 2015 offers a sweeping palette of aromas. Macerated strawberry, cherry and plum notes are hemmed in by anise verging on violets, crushed stones and sweet tobacco. It's decidedly medium bodied, with dark fruit at the core, anchored by bright acidity and firm, supple tannins. Cracked black pepper and minerality emerge at the close. Nice QPR.

Not the most complex or aromatic Chateauneuf I've had, but shows the power of the 2012 vintage.

On the brighter red, crunchier side of CdP. Tasty, but maybe missing some complexity and polish. Probably more interesting in a few years.

Starting to open after an hour in the decanter. Red and black fruit, earthy body, beautiful acid, and a long, rich finish. I think I'll stock up on this; very good CDP
