Tasting Notes:Deep black-ruby colour. Profound aromas of black cherry, cassis, spice, leather and game.

The Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin was made mostly from very old Mourvedre vines yielding tiny quantities of intensely ripe, concentrated fruit. Those fortunate enough to have tasted this never forget it. Truly a "grand vin". Conditions were so favorable in 2012 that the Perrin family decided to make a special cuvée in honour of their father. "The wine of the vintage is the Perrin’s 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin, and it will most likely merit a perfect rating in another couple of years. Full-bodied, massive and layered on the palate, with awesome purity and freshness, it delivers incredible aromatics of beef blood, truffle, graphite, iron and black and blue fruits. Given all of the fruit and texture, you almost have to hunt for the structure here, but trust me, it’s there. The tasting at Beaucastel took place a 9 a.m., and even then, this is one wine I found impossible to spit. It’s a tour de force that will have 3-4 decades of life."
