Dear Wine Lover,
A few days ago, Robert Parkers Wine Advocate released some new ratings and the one that caught most our attention is the Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2015, with an impressive rating of 98 points but with a potential increase in the next years as per its statement As this was bottled only a week before I tasted it, I suspect this rating will prove to be conservative once a few months have passed. As we only have 60 bottles on stock I wanted to send you this brand new information before it gets sold out as you purchased some Rhône wines from us in the past.
On the first tasting of this wine by Robert Parkers Wine Advocate it stated one of the most impressive barrel samples I tasted from the vintage. One of the most profound, complex, age-worthy wines to ever come from the entire Rhône Valley. A true symbol of the region heritage, this vintage is definitely a tour de force! Made only in the best years from a tiny plot of ancient Mouvedre vines, Hommage A Jacques Perrin is among the planets most coveted cuvées. A mere 10,000 bottles were filled in 2015, a minuscule amount even in fine wine terms.
It is a wine that offers incredible pleasure in its youth or can be cellar for decades to come. This is a Must Have for every single cellar around the world.

Robert Parker 98 points : As this was bottled only a week before I tasted it, I suspect this rating will prove to be conservative once a few months have passed. The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is another prodigious version of this wine. How many wines in this world can be so huge yet so lacking the feeling of weight? There's plenty of layered spice but also a core of raspberries; rich tannins, yet no real astringency; and a long finish without any apparent heat. Wow!
