A blockbuster of the vintage, the Perrin family knocks it out of the park with this 99-point Chateaneuf-du-Pape. Robert Parker raves, “an incredible bouquet of blueberries, garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood and pepper; it’s rich, full-bodied, powerful and layered, with sweet, ripe tannin.” Already one of the most approachable, compared to other vintages, this promises to age gracefully over the next 3 decades, making it a strong cellar investment for the savvy collector.

A leader in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation for over a hundred years, Château de Beaucastel is easily one of the ten most treasured wineries in France. The Perrin family has shepherded their 110 acres of vines in the north of the appellation towards greatness since 1909, and have farmed organically since the 1960s. Their ancient Roussanne vines are an enviable asset that they exploit perfectly, and their Mourvèdre-heavy red Châteauneuf ages better than almost anything in the zone.

A classic blend of mostly Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is a blockbuster that’s certainly the wine of the vintage. Possessing an inky purple color to go with an incredible bouquet of blueberries, garrigue, olive tapenade, beef blood and pepper, it's rich, full-bodied, powerful and layered, with sweet, ripe tannin. It's a more approachable example of this cuvée that past vintages, yet will keep for 3 decades or more. The Perrin family continues to knock it out of the park and have produced some of the wines of the vintage in 2015. In addition, I’ve included the Famille Perrin Gigondas releases here as well.
