Marks and reviews
The Château de Beaucastel cuvée Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2011 comes from an exceptional vineyard of a 100 hectares ( single plot vineyard), in the North of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. This unique terroir of polished pebbles on sandy-clay limestone- combined to a fresh microclimate linked with Mistral and the high share of Mourvèdre in the 13 cultivated varietals- makes it a rare and elegant wine, combining power and finesse. The Château de Beaucastel cuvée Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2011 offers a nice aromatic bouquet in which red berries ( blackberry, redcurrant), figs, pepper and spices prevail. On the palate, it is broad and intense for a wine both rich and suave. The tannins are present and melted, giving a perfectly balanced, but also a round and lingering wine. It is a great wine!
