Lot #128. Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin 1998

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 WA.
"I've been lucky enough to have the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin numerous times recently and it has never failed to deliver everything I could want from a wine. Getting the best parcel of Grenache from the estate and a dramatically shifted blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah and Counoise, it's a massive and concentrated Chateauneuf that surprisingly still seems to show its Mourvedre component front and center. Blackberries, kirsch, truffle, gamy meats, licorice and earth all give way to a full-bodied, seamless, impeccably balanced wine that carries its huge core of fruit with remarkable freshness and grace. While it will no doubt continue to evolve gracefully, it's brilliant today." Wine Advocate #220, Aug 2015
Notes: 2cm, very lightly scuffed capsules, 1 torn neck tag, lightly scuffed, lightly bin soiled and nicked labels.
