Château de Beaucastel has the ability to trace its history back to the 1300s, when Pope Jean XXII ordered that four barrels of Châteauneuf be sent to him. Translating as “the Pope’s new castle”, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a region entwined with papal history.
Today Château de Beaucastel has continued to create spectacular wines with global acclaim. Hommage à Jacques Perrin is a legendary wine that has continued to push the estate to its winemaking limits. Cultivated on the Rhône’s complex terroir, its vines benefit from layers of marine molasses, covered in alpine alluvium.
Only made during the finest vintages, this Southern Rhône blend includes Mourvèdre from very old vines in their Courrieux vineyard. Considered one of the best wines in the world, this is an absolute favourite amongst critics, seeing their 2019 vintage receive a commendable 19/20 from Jancis Robinson.
