The 1998 is an extraordinary effort, and from a purely hedonistic standpoint, probably my favorite Jacques Perrin (no doubt because of the high percentage of Grenache). It is an intense, full-bodied wine filled with notes of kirsch liqueur as well as an incredibly silky, expansive mouthfeel. It is one of the few vintages that was ready to drink within 3-4 years of the vintage, yet it is capable of lasting for three decades. It may not represent exactly what brothers Francois and Jean-Pierre Perrin are seeking (they mean this cuvee to emphasize the greatness of Mourvedre), but it is an incredible wine.
