- Cellar 5 - 8 years (2015-2018)
- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Cork
Opaque dark red black colour with very deep dark red hue. The nose is perfumed delivering aromas of black cherry, dark plum and raspberry followed by some confectionary and earthy cedar end notes. Medium to full bodied with flavours of black cherry, spice and blackberry followed by some underlying earth, meat and pepper characters. Fine grained dry but balanced tannin structure – slightly more tight knit than the 2005 vintage. Long aftertaste of earthy meat like characters, black cherry and spice.
Cellar 5-8 years (2015-2018).
As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate
Powerful, with a round, almost creamy core of blackberry and raspberry fruit all layered with cocoa, sweet toast, mesquite and fig paste. Long and rich through the finish. Still quite primal, with lots in reserve. Best from 2010 through 2030. 17,500 cases made.
