2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin, Château de Beaucastel

The 2016 Hommage is a tour de force. Intense and powerful, this Mourvèdre led wine balances notes of pot pourri and fresh flowers with tapenade and burnt rocks. Long and remarkably complex, it lifts Châteauneuf to a new level.

2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin, Château de Beaucastel
Famille Perrin

Dating back to 1549, Château de Beaucastel may be the oldest estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, now managed by four members of the Perrin family. One of the first estates in the region to utilise organic viticulture, they are known for their use of all 13 permitted grape varieties, particularly Mourvèdre, resulting in powerful, generous wines. As well as red and white Châteauneuf, the estate produces a Vieilles Vignes Blanc from Roussanne and the extremely rare cuvée, Hommage à Jacques Perrin.
