No Hommage a
Jacques Perrin was made in 2008, but
the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape
Hommage a Jacques Perrin is an
utterly perfect wine. Composed of
60% Mourvedre, 20% Syrah, and the
rest Counoise and Grenache, this
prodigious effort boasts an inky/blue/
purple color to the rim in addition
to an exceptional bouquet of camphor,
roasted meats, blueberries, black
cherries, black currants, truffles, beef
blood, pepper, and incense. The
sumptuous aromatics are followed by
a wine of compelling intensity, fullbodied
power, perfect balance, laserlike
focus, and a finish that lasts
more than a minute. The 2007’s texture
reminds me of the 1998 Jacques
Perrin, and the freshness of the fruit
and explosive aromatics are to die
for. There are only 500 cases of this
legend in the making, but for those
lucky enough to find any, it will last for
40-60 years.
