Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin Grande Cuvée 1994
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Château de Beaucastel|
Wine AdvocateThe 1994 is the odd man out in this mini-vertical, revealing an animal-styled personality with notes of beef blood, animal fur, wet dog, mushrooms, tree bark, licorice, spice, black currants, and cherries. Medium to full-bodied and rich, but slightly awkward compared to its siblings, it should be drinkable between 2006-2020. Hindsight suggests this might not have been a vintage in which to produce a Jacques Perrin.
