Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin Beaucastel 300cl 2010
Dating back to 1549, Château de Beaucastel is undoubtedly one of the oldest and finest estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and has been run by successive generations of the supremely talented Perrin family. 1989 was the debut vintage for the flagship wine, Hommage a Jacques Perrin, and is only made in the best years with production limited to around 350 cases on average. The 2010 is an immensely concentrated and firmly structured release, offering up intense notes of cassis, blueberry, kirsch, liquorice, smoked meats, wild herbs and new leather. This is a profound wine that will require at least another 5 years in the cellar but has near limitless cellaring potential.
