Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin from those years was made mostly from very old Mourvedre vines yielding tiny quantities of intensely ripe, concentrated fruit. Those fortunate enough to have tasted this never forget it. Truly a "grand vin". Deep black-ruby colour. Profound aromas of black cherry, cassis, spice, leather and game, with an almost medicinal aspect. Very sweet entry, then firm and closed, almost too hard on the palate today.

    lovely nose young and floral. first sip comes with intense sweetness but the balance is absent and finishes a bit stark. this is after opening for 4 hours. disappointing.
