Tasting Notes

As with the 1995, the 1999 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is fully mature and has a solid spine of acidity giving it a focused, vibrant style. Based on 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and 10% each of Syrah and Counoise brought up in foudre, it shows cooler notes of blackcurrants, Asian spice, graphite, charcuterie, and spice. Full-bodied, concentrated, and elegant on the palate, it’s drinking brilliantly today yet will cruise for another 15 years or more. It would be a good option for readers looking for a classic, fully mature example of this cuvée.

A great performance although initially the nose is closed and takes time before aromas of violets, plum, wild hedgrow and black cherries emerge. Lots of vigour, great definition. The palate is medium-bodied, very harmonious with good depth, less feminine than I have found it in the past. Firming up? Sinewy middle leading towards a game-tinged finish. Very good length with a hint of black truffle on the aftertaste. Superb.

The prodigious 1999 Beaucastel boasts aromas of blackberry fruit intermixed with cassis, licorice, roasted meats, leather, and truffles. While it does not possess much fat or precociousness, it displays definition and elegance. This is a full-bodied, concentrated, classic Beaucastel.
