" No such issue exists with the perfect 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin. I don't know what more a wine could offer. Inky blue/purple, with an extraordinary nose of smoked duck, grilled steaks, Provencal herbs, blackberries, blueberries, kirsch, licorice and truffle, enormously massive, concentrated, fullbodied and built for 3050 years of cellaring, this wine, which is dominated by its Mourvedre component, is a tour de force, a spectacular, worldclass wine. It is going to require some patience, though, and seems to need 45 years of cellaring. It should again be almost ageless in its potential. (10/ 2012) "

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"(based on 70% mourvedre, with roughly 10% each of syrah, grenache and counoise): Bright ruby. A dropdead, roomfilling 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. Finegrained tannins come up with air and give grip to an endless, fruit and mineraldominated finish. This remarkable wine would be at the top of my Chateauneuf tobuy list this vintage if I had the resources to swim in such waters. (1/ 2013)"
