Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 'Hommage a Jacques Perrin' 2011

This S. Rhone legend makes ‘hommage’ in select years, from a predominance of old-vine Mourvèdre -- a departure from its ‘house’ Châteauneuf.


Blackberry-scented beauty (a.k.a. Monastrell in Spain) that loves hot climates like Provence in France and Jumilla in southern Spain. It’s thick-skinned and dense making reds with a pleasing gaminess.

Rhone Valley, France

Originating in the Swiss Alps and emptying into the Mediterranean, the Rhône sculpted some of France's most fabled terroirs, from Condrieu and Côte Rôtie up north to Châteauneuf-du-Pape down south.
