Easily one of the top wines of the vintage and an utterly profound wine the just bottled 2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin 70% Mourvèdre and the rest an even split of Grenache Syrah... Easily one of the top wines of the vintage and an utterly profound wine the just bottled 2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin 70% Mourvèdre and the rest an even split of Grenache Syrah and Counoise aged all in foudre delivers a brilliant array of pure blackberry blueberry meat truffle and licorice-like characteristics on the nose. Intense and yet focused at the same time this shows astounding purity of fruit as well as background complexity. Full-bodied massively structured and fruited on the palate the wine is perfectly balanced possesses a huge mouth filling texture amazing focus and precision and a blockbuster finish. This cuvee is surprisingly accessible in its youth but doesn't start to develop its true character until around the age of 20 (the '89 is still a baby). Gorgeous stuff to say the least. 99+

Potentially the wine of the vintage the 2009 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin had just been bottled two weeks before my visit. A wine of extraordinary density richness precision and unreal flavor intensity it reveals abundant gamey meaty notes intermixed with smoked duck Provencal herbs blueberries blackberries kirsch and licorice. This loaded multidimensional massively concentrated 2009 is much softer than most Hommages. It should be drinkable in 3-4 years and keep for 30-40 years thereafter. Kudos to one of the world's great winemaking families!

Very dense, with Turkish coffee, roasted alder and allspice notes out front, followed by a huge core of Black Mission fig, crushed black currant and black licorice notes. The long finish lets loam and ganache flavors... Very dense, with Turkish coffee, roasted alder and allspice notes out front, followed by a huge core of Black Mission fig, crushed black currant and black licorice notes. The long finish lets loam and ganache flavors stride through, showing cut and precision. This has serious power and intensity, and should cruise easily in the cellar. Best from 2017 through 2030. 500 cases made. –JM

Hypnotic bouquet of black and blue fruits potpourri and exotic spices. Broad sappy and strikingly pure with intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors that reach ever corner of the palate. Rich but lithe wine with a seamless texture and superb finishing clarity. This wine's marriage of power and vivacity is something else.
