The 2003 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is fully mature (I’ve had other bottles show more closed and tight, I’ve also had bad luck with corked bottles of this wine) and is a beautiful 2003 that does everything right. Loads of ripe dark fruits, truffle, underbrush, spice, and licorice notes all give way to a full-bodied effort that has loads of sexy fruit, beautiful Mourvèdre spice and meaty characteristic, ripe tannins, and a great finish. I love its mid-palate, it has good purity and precision, and is another vintage of this cuvée that can be drunk today or cellared for another decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2003 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin has turned out even better than I thought last year. Black purple to the rim, with an extraordinary nose of smoke, camphor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherry, white flowers, licorice, and Chinese black tea, the wine has superb richness, huge tannins, massive concentration, and a monster finish. Forget this wine for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 35 or more. - Robert Parker

Shows the ripe, opulent power of the vintage, with dark plum, raspberry confiture, hoisin sauce and tar notes that are held back by youthfully stubborn tannins. Yet the long, sinewy finish has impressive drive, with hints of chestnut, game and mineral. Patience required. Best from 2009 through 2031. 375 cases made. –James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
