2018, Chateau de Beaucastel, CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE, "Hommage" Jacques Perrin


2018 Hommage à Jacques Perrin, an old-vines cuvée that is even more influenced by Mourvèdre – making up 60% of the final blend. The warmth and power of 2018 is evident in the Hommage, but so too is the overriding influence of Mourvèdre, tempering the warm and spicy Mediterranean fruit with a distinctly saline and dried herb character, whilst lifting the finish with a note of violet. This is a rich, layered Hommage aptly termed “flamboyant” by the Perrins, with huge savoury intensity providing balance to the ripe, dark fruit.

80% Mourvèdre, 10% Counoise, 10% Syrah
