Tasting Notes

In a different style than the 1989, yet every bit as good, the 1990 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin checks in as a normal blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Syrah and Counoise, brought up in a large foudre. Resembling the 2000 with its forward, sexy style, it has awesome kirsch liqueur, blackcurrants, dry aged beef, Asian spice, and garrigue notes all literally jumping from the glass. As with the 1989, it’s fully mature, yet still has a stacked mid-palate, beautiful density and depth, and a seamless texture. This is another magical wine from the Perrin family I wish every reader could taste. Drink it over the coming decade.

About as sexy as this cuvee gets, the 1990 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin (60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Syrah and Counoise) is spectacular. Similar in style to the 2000, it comes from a hot, dry vintage (and a big crop) that resulted in perfect ripeness and low acidity in most of the varieties. Full-bodied, supple, seamless and silky, with sweet tannin, it has awesome aromatics of kirsch liqueur, currants, Provençal herbs, meat juice and exotic spices all literally soaring from the glass. At maturity and drinking brilliantly, it should hold nicely for another decade easily, and have a gradual decline after that.

Beaucastel’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is one of my very favorite wines. Unfortunately I don’t get a chance to drink it all that often. Our magnum of 1990 is truly magnificent. A wine that takes over all the senses, the 1990 impresses for its layered personality and breathtaking fruit. In a word: stunning. The baguette topped with ragout of beef ribs, pork shoulder and oyster mushrooms is perfect with these two aged, Old World reds.

The perfection of the 1990 is based on a seamless, classic, harmonious concoction of flowers, melted licorice, blackberries, kirsch, blueberries, and Asian spices. An enormously full-bodied, sweet, expansive, amazing wine with a finish that lasts over a minute, it combines the extraordinary hedonism of the 1998 with an unbelievable intellectual appeal that makes it so hauntingly great. Even though it remains youthful, it can be drunk now or cellared for another 30 years.
