Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin is a special cuvée in honor of the Perrin family's founder. Only made in exceptional years from mostly very old Mourvedre vines, the Beaucastel 'specialty grape', yielding tiny quantities of intensely ripe, concentrated fruit. Meant for long aging, this is a superb choice for the cellar to open on the most special of occasions. In 1989, 1990, 1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2005 conditions were so favorable that the Perrins' released an Hommage à Jacques Perrin.

The Beaucastel estate dates back to the 16th century, and descendants of the Perrin family have owned it since the early 1900s. Today the Perrins are pillars of quality in the wine world, favoring an organic approach for their wines, and a steadfast commitment to the expression of terroir. Beaucastel has been cited as one of World's Greatest Wine Estates by Robert Parker, and wins awards and accolades year in and year out.

Shows the ripe, opulent power of the vintage, with dark plum, raspberry confiture, hoisin sauce and tar notes that are held back by youthfully stubborn tannins. Yet the long, sinewy finish has impressive drive, with hints of chestnut, game and mineral. Patience required. Best from 2009 through 2031.

The 2003 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin has turned out even better than I thought last year. Black purple to the rim, with an extraordinary nose of smoke, camphor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherry, white flowers, licorice, and Chinese black tea, the wine has superb richness, huge tannins, massive concentration, and a monster finish. Forget this wine for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 35 or more.
