As I stated last year there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006 but Beaucastel's 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big sweet perfume of black truffles camphor earth incense new saddle leather and loads of peppery blackberry and herb-infused meaty black cherry fruit. Deep full-bodied and dense with sweet tannin this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005 2004 or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

Powerful with a round almost creamy core of blackberry and raspberry fruit all layered with cocoa sweet toast mesquite and fig paste. Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal with lots in reserve. Best from... Powerful with a round almost creamy core of blackberry and raspberry fruit all layered with cocoa sweet toast mesquite and fig paste. Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal with lots in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2030. - J.M.

Spicy finely etched red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by fresh lavender herbs and minerals. The palate offers tangy raspberry and cherry skin flavors with gentle tannins adding shape. Impressively pure even delicate with outstanding finishing clarity and length. This beguiles rather than brutalizes; I underestimated it last year.
