Tasting Note:

Aromatic sweet-fruited notes on the palate, red grape, agen prune and plum character. The palate is a little more serious, the fine tannins and stony character offering a nice touch of austerity to compliment the ripe fruit, more linear than the 2013. A spread of fruit splays itself across the palate. Not big but with very good layering and delineation of flavours, from ripe fruit to herb and tobacco. A blend of 60% Mourvedre with the rest made up of Grenache and Syrah. Always a Mourvedre dominated blend, the Hommage is the result of a careful vineyard selection of Beaucastel’s best fruit always with the Mourvedre element dominating the blend. A maximum of 400 cases are made each year. The wine is aged, like Beaucastel, in large old wooden foudres but for 8 months longer than Beaucastel itself.
