Exceptional Wine

Hook and Ford

Chateau de Beaucastel, Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin 2012

£285.00

The top cuvee of Chateau de Beaucastel, one of the top producers of the Southern Rhone, this is frequently the best wine produced in the area. 

Produced from the oldest Mourvedre vines at the property with the addition of Syrah, Grenache and Counoise, this is a very special wine indeed. There is little to compare it to in fact. 

Vinous gives this 96/100:

Dark purple. Powerful aromas of cherry liqueur, licorice pastille and pungent flowers, with exotic Indian spice and mocha overtones. Dense, sweet and broad, offering intense black and blue fruit preserve, violet and spicecake flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. Fine-grained tannins build slowly through the clinging, appealingly sweet finish, which shows outstanding clarity and persistence and lingering florality. One of the standouts of the vintage and surprisingly approachable for this bottling, although drinking it before its tenth birthday would seem like a shame to me.
