Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2004

$349

The potentially perfect 2004 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin has turned out to be just an amazing wine and one of the profound examples of this cuvee the Perrins have produced. It certainly has all the power, density, and richness of the great years, but there is almost a surreal elegance and lightness for a wine this powerful and dense. Almost difficult to describe, the gorgeous multi-layered texture, and the heavenly perfume of smoked meats, flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and truffles is a knock-out. In the mouth, it is medium to full-bodied with incredible intensity, purity, and overall symmetry. There's nothing out of place in this remarkable wine, and it seems somewhat approachable already, yet it will no doubt have the uncanny ability to age for 25-40+ years. Robert Parker

From magnum. Drinking absolutely beautifully. More nuanced and complex (and less powerful and concentrated) than I would have expected. In a great spot now but decades of life ahead. Just wonderful stuff.

Great bouquet with lots of candy apple. Very well integrated with a silky smooth finish. Could last another 10 years easily.
