Extremely dense with compacted layers of braised fig blackberry and hoisin sauce that will need cellaring to stretch out fully.

Extremely dense with compacted layers of braised fig blackberry and hoisin sauce that will need cellaring to stretch out fully. Plenty of coffee bittersweet ganache and charcoal notes fill out the background with prominent but ripe well-rounded tannins helping to pound out the finish. An impressive combination of power and purity. Best from 2010 through 2030. From France.-J.M.

Opaque purple. An explosive room-filling bouquet of ripe raspberry blackcurrant and boysenberry scents along with sexy floral herb and cured meat nuances. Incredibly silky with medium-weight red and dark berry preserve... Opaque purple. An explosive room-filling bouquet of ripe raspberry blackcurrant and boysenberry scents along with sexy floral herb and cured meat nuances. Incredibly silky with medium-weight red and dark berry preserve and cured tobacco flavors and superb mineral lift. Velvety tannins melt into the deep dark fruit which carries endlessly through the finish. A hypnotic supremely compelling wine with the depth and balance to age for years and years. If you've got the means get some

A classic example of the vintage, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin is made from 60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Counoise and Syrah.

A classic example of the vintage, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin is made from 60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Counoise and Syrah. Inky colored, it offers an iron, beef-blood and gamey aromatic profile to go with gorgeous purity and focus on the palate. Reminding me of the 2010, yet even more firm and focused, this full-bodied effort will need another 7-8 years to start to show maturity, and will have upward of 40-50 years of overall longevity. 97+ - Jeb Dunnuck
