jebdunnuck.com, October 2017

A classic blend of mostly Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a blockbuster that’s certainly the wine of the vintage. Possessing an inky purple color to go with an incredible bouquet of...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, August 2017

The dark red berries are well complimented with back note of blue fruit. Just a hint of oak, because the 2015 was aged in a second year foudre, from there you find pepper, herbs, earth and a hint of barnyard. On the...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2017

As this was bottled only a week before I tasted it, I suspect this rating will prove to be conservative once a few months have passed. The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is another prodigious version of...

Wine Spectator, June 2018

A well-endowed wine, dripping with cassis, plum sauce and raspberry puree flavors supported by notes of warmed apple wood, black tea and melted licorice. Dense yet remarkably polished, and almost supple in feel, with a...

Decanter, December 2019

Immediately more red-fruited than other recent vintages, it's warm, with lush stewed fruit scents, stewed plums in particular, and raspberry. Full-bodied, but without the mass of tannin of the 2016. It's warmer on the...

The 2015 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a proprietary red blend from the Southern Rhone region of France, produced by Chateau de Beaucastel. This wine is notable for its impressive complexity and balance, receiving high praise from multiple esteemed reviewers.

According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, this wine is "another prodigious version" of the Hommage a Jacques Perrin. Reviewer Joe Czerwinski awarded it a score of 98, describing it as "huge yet so lacking the feeling of weight," with a core of raspberries, layered spice, rich tannins, and a long finish. He anticipates that this rating might prove conservative over time.

Jeb Dunnuck also showered this wine with accolades, giving it a near-perfect score of 99. He describes the 2015 vintage as a "blockbuster" and "the wine of the vintage." Dunnuck highlights its "inky purple color" and "incredible bouquet of blueberries, garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood, and pepper." He notes that it is rich, full-bodied, and powerful, with sweet, ripe tannin, and suggests that it will be more approachable in its youth compared to previous vintages, while still capable of aging for three decades or more.

Wine Spectator's review echoes these sentiments, awarding the wine a score of 98. Reviewer J.M. describes it as a "well-endowed wine" with flavors of cassis, plum sauce, and raspberry puree, supported by notes of black tea, melted licorice, and warm earth. He recommends that it will be at its best from 2025 through 2050.

Jeff Leve from TheWineCellarInsider.com also gave it a score of 98, praising its "dark red berries" and "beautiful sense of purity." He notes that the wine is thick, rich, and opulent, with layers of fruit, herbs, and a hint of barnyard. Leve points out that the wine is made from a blend of 70% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Grenache, and 10% Counoise, and aged in a second-year foudre.

Decanter awarded the wine a score of 97, noting that it is "immediately more red-fruited than other recent vintages" with "lush stewed fruit scents, stewed plums in particular, and raspberry." The reviewer suggests that it will benefit from further aging and recommends waiting until at least 2025 before opening.

Overall, the 2015 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin stands out for its complexity, balance, and potential for aging, making it a remarkable addition to any wine collection.
