1990 Chateau Beaucastel A Jacques Perrin Hommage CDP - 100 pts!

Château de Beaucastel is a wine producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the southern Rhône. It makes some of the most famous wines in the whole of the Rhône Valley, from a classic southern Rhône blend that includes Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, as well as the lesser-known Counoise and Cinsaut varieties.

In 1549, Pierre de Beaucastel bought a barn and a plot of vineyards and inscribed his family's crest onto the walls. The land passed through the family until 1909, when it came under control of scientist Pierre Perrin. Today, Perrin's grandsons Jean-Pierre and François run the château.

The grapes are hand-picked and are vinified in groups to provide consistency for blending, and oak is used sparingly. Château de Beaucastel's flagship Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine is predominantly made from Grenache and Mourvèdre, with a range of other grape varieties, including a portion of white grapes. There is also a Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc, which is made predominantly from Roussanne with Grenache BlancClairette and Bourboulenc. Château de Beaucastel also makes a top varietal Roussanne, and a top Mourvèdre-based red wine called Hommage à Jacques Perrin in honor of the current proprietors' father.

Rating 100 RP - The perfection of the 1990 is based on a seamless classic harmonious concoction of flowers melted licorice blackberries kirsch blueberries and Asian spices. An enormously full-bodied sweet expansive amazing wine with a finish that lasts over a minute it combines the extraordinary hedonism of the 1998 with an unbelievable intellectual appeal that makes it so hauntingly great. Even though it remains youthful it can be drunk now or cellared for another 30 years. One of the true legends of Rhone!
