Dream Wine

Original post by JonDerry, Jun 4, 2013.

There are many wines I'd like to buy if money weren't an issue. Here's one of them:

2010 Beaucastel Hommage a Perrin - Made from 70% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, Grenache, and Counoise. 500 cases produced. 

Some IWC text: Bright ruby. A drop-dead, room-filling bouquet evokes black raspberry liqueur, incense, anise and lavender, with smoke and herb overtones. Sappy and penetrating, offering deeply pitched but lively dark berry and cherry flavors and an exotic touch of candied flowers. Fine-grained tannins come up with air and give grip to an endless, fruit- and mineral-dominated finish. This remarkable wine would be at the top of my Chateauneuf to-buy list this vintage if I had the resources to swim in such waters.

Maybe find some folks to go in on a bottle?

Crazy to think they've been in bottle 50 years...I remember D's stories of the La Mission Haut Brion.
