More forward and approachable than the 2013, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is nevertheless a massive wine that has more depth and concentration than just about every other wine in the vintage. A...

97+ I was shocked at the quality of the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin and I can’t think of another wine that comes close to this level of depth, concentration and richness in the vintage. Its inky...

You can sense this is a cooler vintage immediately on the nose - there's more spice, more detail and precision. A little liquorice, leather and violets. Medium-bodied, not as dense as more recent vintages but very well...

With a nose of truffle, blueberry, charcoal, smoke and spicy black plums, the wine is powerful, lush, silky and concentrated. The crushed rock and stone quality really comes through. There is good freshness, purity of...

The 2014 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a highly acclaimed red wine hailing from the Southern Rhone region of France. This proprietary blend, consisting of 70% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Grenache, and 10% Counoise, demonstrates the exemplary winemaking capabilities of Chateau de Beaucastel.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, through reviewer Jeb Dunnuck, awarded this wine an impressive 97+ score, noting, "I was shocked at the quality of the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin and I can’t think of another wine that comes close to this level of depth, concentration and richness in the vintage." Dunnuck describes the wine as having "sensational notes of roasted herbs, licorice, caramelized meats and layers of black and blue fruits," while highlighting its rich, full-bodied character. He recommends cellaring the wine for 4-6 years and states it will drink well for the following two decades.

Jeff Leve of TheWineCellarInsider.com also rated the wine highly with a 96 score. He describes the nose as a complex mix of "truffle, blueberry, charcoal, smoke and spicy black plums," and praises the wine's powerful, lush, silky, and concentrated palate. Leve emphasizes the wine's "good freshness, purity of fruit and length in the finish," and calls it a "definite contender for wine of the vintage."

Decanter's review, also scoring the wine 96 points, offers a slightly different perspective by noting the cooler vintage characteristics. According to Decanter, the wine showcases "more spice, more detail and precision" with notes of "liquorice, leather and violets." The review highlights its medium-bodied, well-balanced nature, and suggests it is already drinkable but may not last as long as other more concentrated vintages.

Jeb Dunnuck, in his own publication, reiterates his high praise with another 97-point rating. He notes the wine's forward and approachable nature compared to the 2013 vintage and describes it as a "massive wine" with "thrilling notes of black and blue fruits, beef blood, licorice, ground pepper, and bouquet garni." Dunnuck advises that while the wine is relatively accessible, it still requires 4-5 years of bottle age to fully reveal its potential.

Overall, the 2014 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a remarkable wine, well-balanced with excellent depth and complexity, and is highly recommended by multiple reviewers for both current enjoyment and extended cellaring.
