Rhone: A stage set for spectacular vintages

It is this sun-soaked terroir that coaxes forth the robust and perfumed Grenache grapes that are the backbone of our celebrated Chateau de Beaucastel masterpiece.

In 2015, Nature bestowed upon Rhone her plentiful gifts - temperate breezes wafted through verdant vineyards and ripening grapes bathed in the soft glow of summer. A perfect stage set for a stellar performance.

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!
