Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve
Description: Winemaker's Notes
Offering abundant, dark fruit character and inviting, plush texture, our 2012 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the warm, sunny and dry growing season. The wine opens with layered aromas of crushed blackberries, dark cherries, bittersweet chocolate and violet. Ripe, muscular tannins support the expansive, dark-fruit flavors, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy. Complex nuances of toffee and toasted oak spices, from aging in new French oak barrels, heighten the aromas and linger on the persistent finish.

Pairing: This wine makes an elegant accompaniment to filet mignon with forest mushrooms.

Critical Acclaim

The Wine Advocate - "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is BVís flagship wine. It boasts sweet notes of charcoal, burning embers, vanillin, tar and copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In keeping with this generously endowed vintage, the wine is supple, full-bodied, multidimensional and opulent. It will drink beautifully young and last for 20-25 years."
