Condition

In Neck
In the late 1980s and mid 1990s, this collector’s interest in wine blossomed during visits to the Bordeaux and Champagne regions of France, as well as Tuscany. In the early 2000s he intensified his acquisitions, evolving into a devoted collector. The core of his collection is predominantly French wines from the Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne regions, Italian wines from Piedmont and Tuscany, and a selection from California. All the bottles were sourced from the SAQ and LCBO. Notably, Bordeaux wines were acquired as futures, while others were obtained upon release. To ensure optimal conditions, the wines were stored professionally in third-party temperature and humidity-controlled cellars and for the past 15 years have been in his home cellar where temperature and humidity are meticulously regulated.
The score for 2001 Chateau de Beaucastel Hommage a Jacques Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape is 96 from Robert Parker and the tasting note - I found this bottle of 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin to be slightly behind a recent bottle from my cellar. Nevertheless, it was perfumed and surprisingly open, with gorgeous cedar, charcuterie, truffle, blackberry and currant-like fruit all soaring from the glass. Full-bodied, seamless and supple, with its tannin, fruit and acidity perfectly balanced, it’s just now on the cusp of moving from its adolescent stage into the early stages of maturity. Give bottles another 3-5 years and enjoy over the following couple of decades. The blend here is the classic, foudre-aged mix of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, 10% Counoise, and 10% Syrah.
