Hommage à Jacques Perrin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2000

Shimmery medium garnet, the 2000 Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jaques Perrin is a sexy beast. Although there are obvious characteristics of brettanomyces, they fade after two hours in the decanter. The nose is loaded with dried provence herbs, dried black cherries and black plums, dried figs, iodine, game, forrest floor, leather and hints of black truffle. Full bodied, very concentrated and with ripe but slightly chalky tannins, this Châteauneuf-Powerhouse closes with a long finish. Not quite at the heights of 1990 or 1998, but still a hedonistic treat. Drink now until 2030 — 3 days ago

Esprit de Tablas Adelaida District Mourvedre Blend 2016

2016 - Quite delicious! Good structure without chalkiness. Clean yet round finish. Herbaceous, not too earthy. You'd expect Chateau Beaucastel to create a delicious Rhône with Cali grapes that you'd have a hard time knowing it was it wasn't from France. Drink now, but I'm saving my last bottle for a couple more years. — 3 months ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1988

Shows fully mature aromas and flavors, a little Brett, but not overpowering, lovely complexity and balance, starting to show more as it aerates, lovely. — 19 hours ago

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne

This is one off the most silky wines there is, it’s perfection in the glass. But still in its junior life so 95 says it al. Rousanne all the way, love it. — 12 days ago

Famille Perrin

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes-du-Rhone Red Rhone Blend 2016

Lovely Cotes du Rhone blend of Grenache (40%), Mourvèdre (30%), Syrah (20%) and Cinsault (10%). Dark (almost purple) color. Nose is full of cooked red and black berry fruit, violets and baking spices. Cooked red fruits, blackberries and plums dominate the pallet. The baking spices are also present on the finish. Ample acidity and tannins. Plush and generous. Velvety smooth. Excellent! — 9 days ago

Esprit de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend 2003

All the tannins had nicely smoothed out, but unfortunately so had most of the flavor and nose. My cork had dried out and the wine was a little over the hill. Oh well. Still a good wine but not extraordinary. — 2 months ago
