Chateau de Beaucastel
Hommage A Jacques Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape 2014
France , southern rhone
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate , Jeb Dunnuck - Oct 2015
Probably the wine of the vintage (I feel like I say that every year for this cuvee), the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a substantial, full-bodied, shockingly concentrated 2014 that gives up classic notes of blackberries, blueberries, forest floor, beef blood and licorice. Mouth-coating and rich with building tannin, it will be approachable at an earlier age than most vintages, yet will still need 5-6 years of cellaring.
