Enveloping nose of super-ripe orange, pomegranate and cigar leaf that’s still very youthful and needs time to reveal its myriad nuances. Also notes of licorice, dried herbs and rose petals. Enormous concentration, silkiness and finesse on the expansive palate. Extravagant in the best sense of that word! The finish gets finer, the closer it gets to infinity. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (Feb 2022) Read more

Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate

Tasted from foudre, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin is approximately 60% Mourvèdre (from the same parcel, year after year), with the balance a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. Ripe plums and truffle-like notes mark the nose, while the palate is full-bodied and rich, with a long, velvety finish. Showing even more complexity and length than the regular bottling, there's a chance this could reach a triple-digit score down the road. Drink 2025 - 2040 Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (May 2022)

Georgina Hindle - Decanter

Gorgeous florality on the nose, fresh rose petals and sweet red fruits, so beguiling and tempting. Beautiful fragranced fruit on the palate, the roses really continue all the way, edging the fruit and giving the palate such scent. Tannins are smooth and well integrated and this has a gorgeous texture, full and generous but silky smooth and so delectable. Excellent acidity gives freshness and energy and underpins the flavours giving a lovely hit of spiced liquorice, caramelised nuts and cola cubes. Feels really well worked, intense and concentrated but excellent definition and focus. A stylish and seductive wine. Hold onto for a few years. 5% Counoise completes the blend. Drink 2025 - 2048 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.com (Jul 2022)

The deep, inky hued 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is up with the crème de la crème in the vintage and just screams Mourvèdre with its layers of blue fruits, pepper, iron, and gamey, wild herb aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied, has terrific purity, building tannins, and a great finish. It will have some educational appeal in its youth due to its balance and purity, but it deserves a decade in the cellar.

Jane Anson - New Bordeaux

Beaucastel continues to set the bar for what Châteauneuf du Pape can do, and it is delivering a superb 2020 vintage of Hommage à Jacques Perrin here, using grapes from a dedicated 4ha of the property. Characterful smoked earth, dried herbs, grilled blackberry and blueberry fruits, immediately setting out the effortless way that these soils cope with the heat, and turn it into an important part of the personality. Relax and take your time with this wine, as it stretches out, deepening as it goes. So much complexity and teasing power. Director Charles Perrin, winemaker César Perrin. Drink 2024 to 2042 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux (August 2022)

Winemakers Note

LIMITED QUANTITY : MAX 30 bts Affirming your uniqueness and standing up for your ideas really is a way of life. By defining new frontiers, as other great pioneers did, Jacques Perrin has earned his place in the history of great wines. To honor the memory and the heritage of this man who forged their skills and guided their philosophy, the fifth generation of Famille Perrin has created this highly personal and remarkable cuvee «Hommage à Jacques Perrin». Behind its out of the ordinary and exclusive character lie the secrets of a wine with a purpose, a bearer of truth. It carries naturally within itself its roots, the memory of its place of origin, without reserve. A truly uncompromising wine, a wine of conviction and character that makes no concessions . A wine that can only exist in ideal conditions, that allow the truth of its origins, at the source of taste, to be revealed. Although « Hommage à Jacques Perrin » is an authentic Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it is nevertheless an interpretation, an individual vision, with full respect for the terroir from which its springs. At its origin, a remarkable terroir of very old vines tended as naturally as possible, according to the principles of biodynamics that were so dear to Jacques Perrin, to extract the purest and the truest expression. Its unique stylistic signature is also influenced by a veritable choice, that of the dominance of Mourvèdre in the blend. This ancestral grape variety of Châteauneuf du Pape, rehabilitated by Jacques Perrin, is particularly difficult to work with and can only flourish in very specific climatic conditions. But, when it is truly mastered, it offers the wine its unique personality, with enormous complexity and aromas of black fruit, spices and leather. « Hommage à Jacques Perrin » is also notable for its refined, noble and elegant tannins and its perfect balance between freshness and concentration. With their great purity, each of its vintages mature slowly and evolve in complexity thanks to their remarkable ageing potential.
