Jean-Paul Autard carries on the tradition established by his father Paul when he founded their family’s domaine in the village of Courthezon in the early 1970s. His unique style, fusing elegance, balance and generously expressive Chateauneuf-du-Pape flavor, has won his wines an international following. Autard does not need to green harvest because his vines average over 50 years of age (they are between 40-96 years old). The vines’ age, together with the limited use of only organic fertilizer, naturally ensures low yields and concentrated, balanced fruit. No pesticides or chemical anti-rot products or fertilizers are used. A young wine with tremendous richness, structure and balance that can age for years to come.
