Chateau de Beaucastel 'Hommage a Jacques Perrin' 2001 (magnum)


Beaucastel has had some problems with the dreaded brett in the past but any suggestion of such issues now seem to be well behind it. Certainly, no evidence of it here. No evidence of anything but a stupendous wine. One sometimes wonders if some of the Rhone wines that have come out in recent years as 'flagships', with monumental price tags, are intended for nothing other than to jump on the Parker bandwagon and cash in while they can, with massive, overheated wine bombs. This is certainly a wine that has attracted very favourable reviews from Parker and high points. Well, he got it spot on. This is a brilliant, wonderful wine.


First made in 1989, it is a curious blend of 60% mourvedre, 20% grenache, 10% syrah and 10% counoise, though that can change in certain years such as 1998 which favoured grenache. It is only made in top years and only in small quantities, never more than 5,000 bottles, and usually considerably less.


It is ripe, big and full-flavoured. Finishes with ultra thin tannins and is incredibly long. So long. A mix of flavours with dry herbs and lots of cherry notes. This is a brilliant wine by any standard. The colour was so bright that it is simply impossible to imagine it is pushing a decade of age. It is sooo young.

“Cloudy Bay and other Sauvignon Blancs: Cloudy Bay was established by David Hohnen, of Cape Mentelle fame, in 1985. Cloudy Bay takes its name from a bay at the northern tip of the South Island named by Captain Cook in 1770. Cloudy Bay now has 60 hectares of vineyards planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Cloudy Bay also sources grapes from elsewhere in the Marlborough region. Cloudy Bay's staggering success can be attributed to its groundbreaking Sauvignon Blanc, as well as its distinctive labels, which reflect the skyline of the nearby Richmond Ranges. It is now owned by Veuve Clicquot.”

“A couple of very old friends share a birthday lunch every year and always have some wonderful wines for the occasion. This year, they really gave it a nudge. Half a dozen of us met to celebrate the day and we saw some top notch stuff. They also share a cellar, which is immaculate, and these wines had all been squirelled away since their release. If anything, the day showed just how important the very best cellaring conditions are, as many of these drank as well or better than we'd seen them before. Occasionally my scores may suggest that I do get a bit excited but for this event, I was one of the more moderate in my marks. Naturally, we did not all agree over each wine but, as a generalisation, there was largely a consensus on the wines.
There was a Delegrange-Bachelet Montrachet that I could not get into the system but will hopefully be able to add soon.
