The Château de Beaucastel Hommage à Jacques Perrin from those years was made mostly from very old Mourvedre vines yielding tiny quantities of intensely ripe, concentrated fruit. Those fortunate enough to have tasted it never forget it. Truly, a ‘grand vin’.
Saturated black-ruby color. More, darker aromas of black cherry, cassis, spice, leather and game, has an almost medicinal aspect.
Very sweet entry, then backward and closed, almost to rough on the palate today.
Extremely concentrated at the finish.
A wine to be kept for your retirement.
