Review:

The first edition of this tribute wine came out in 1989. Since then, only 18 vintages have had the privilege of becoming a Hommage à Jacques Perrin. François and Jean-Pierre had wanted to pay homage to their father, Jacques, who had a huge influence on them.

It was the first wine produced outside Bordeaux to be distributed by Bordeaux négociants. Only the five premier négociants of the so-called "Place de Bordeaux" hold the distribution rights of this prestigious cuvée.

Hommage à Jacques Perrin ages in large casks and is bottled later than the Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is a dense and full-bodied, concentrated wine with an immense aromatic richness dominated by the aromas of wild berries, undergrowth and liquorice. Enveloping on the palate, with firm but accessible tannins which enable it to be enjoyed right from its early years in bottle. Smoky, leather and inky hints. Profound, concentrated and muscly, it leaves in the memory an amazing recollection of acacia flowers and laurel.

The 2014 vintage of Hommage à Jacques Perrin has been, in Robert Parker's words, "the wine of the year". With around 60% Mourvèdre providing structure to the blend, this wine's tannins are sweet and its perfume evokes wild mushrooms and tree bark. It was a difficult year, with almost 900 ml of rainfall and the almost ever-present threat of mildew, which therefore demanded constant and very precise work in the vineyards. Yields were 40% lower, but the sacrifice is there to be appreciated in every bottle. As always, an outstanding wine.
