NEW: HOMMAGE PERRIN 2017

Beaucastel.jpg
Newly released we have limited availability of the "perfect" 2017 Hommage à Jacques Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape.  2017 is a great vintage of ageworthy wines for the Southern Rhone and the ultra-premium, small production cuvee made from Beaucastel's best vineyards is the jewel in the crown.  Hommage is based around their signature grape Mourvedre which really excelled in the heat of the vintage.

“On another level, the brilliant 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is just about all Mourvèdre”
100 Jeb Dunnuck

Winemaker Marc Perrin believes the exceptional 2016 and 2017 are the best pair of vintages for this Rhone icon since the legendary 1989 and 1990 (which currently sell close to £9000/12).  Undoubtedly one of the finest vintages to date, the excellent 2017 receives 98-100 from the Wine Advocate's Joe Czerwinski and already has a straight 100 points from Rhone expert Jeb Dunnock.  A great wine to secure on release, we have a small number of highly sought after magnums to offer as well.

 
“This storied property continues to hit on all cylinders. Marc Perrin describes 2017 as "a 'Californian' kind of vintage," but also says, "It's amazing how balanced the wines are. Across the board, these are the best pair of vintages since 89/90. I love the balance”
98-100 Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
 

2017 HOMMAGE A JACQUES PERRIN
£800 per 3x75cl IB  /  £550 per magnum 1x150cl IB
 
On another level, the brilliant 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is just about all Mourvèdre (there are small amounts of Grenache, Syrah, and Counoise) brought up in a large foudre. It reveals a saturated purple color as well as a super-rich, blockbuster-styled bouquet of blackcurrants, blackberries, ground pepper, truffle, charcuterie, and God knows what else. With full-bodied richness, a stacked, opulent mid-palate, building tannins, and a sensational finish, it’s another perfect wine from this team and is unquestionably in the same realm as the 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2016. Give bottles 7-8 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 40-50 years."
100pts Jeb Dunnuck

Loaded with mulberry and blueberry fruit, graced by hints of star anise, cardamom, cinnamon and allspice, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin is another standout vintage for this wine. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and long on the finish, at this point, it's maybe not quite as sure a thing to reach the century score as the beyond-superlative 2018, but I wouldn't rule it out. This is seriously great wine."
97-100pts Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
