With around three quarters of the blend always made up of the beguilingly unique Mourvedre variety it is no surprise to find this vintage of Hommage a Jacques is a wild and wonderful sensory experience. It is the best Chateauneuf of the vintage and one of the best wines ever produced in the region. And that is indeed saying something.

Château de Beaucastel

About Château de Beaucastel

One of the most impressive and consistently excellent properties in the South of France, Château de Beaucastel is a powerhouse in the ancient appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The flagship estate of the famous Perrin family, the might Beaucastel has been the jewel in this dynasty’s crown for a century.

 

Of course, the property itself is far older, with records of its existence dating back to the 16th century when Pierre de Beaucastel purchased the first plots of land in 1549 upon which the famous vines are found today. Pierre Perrin was the first of his family to take the reins at Château de Beaucastel in 1909, but it was his son Jacques who in fact founded the Perrin business as we understand it and purchased the magical Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate outright.

 

Viniculture

Implementing a pervasive philosophy at Beaucastel, respect for the transcendent terroir is at the heart of every wine crafted here. The family switched to fully organic farming as early as 1950, whilst the leap to biodynamic was made decades ahead of many others in 1974. Those intimately familiar with Châteauneuf-du-Pape may be interested to know that the Perrins are of the mind that too many of their peers are dominated by Grenache and heavy oak. “It’s all about harnessing Grenache and sublimating it” the well-phrased official approach. The result of the decision to consistently use all 13 traditional (and permitted) Châteauneuf-du-Pape grapes makes this a producer of unrivalled complexity and incredible consistency.
