93 Point Wine Spectator : The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve impresses for its silky tannins and exceptional overall finesse. Today the aromatics are a bit subdued, and the wine is quite shut down, but its textural elegance compensates to a large degree and suggests a very bright future.
Is this the 2009, as it states in the headline, or the 2010, which is the vintage that is mentioned in the ratings?
For more than 70 years, Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has held the honor of being the flagship wine of Beaulieu Vineyard. Handcrafted with cutting-edge winemaking worthy of our highest quality grapes, the 2009 vintage boasts exceptionally powerful yet elegant flavors. The highly saturated aromas and expansive, richly textured flavors brim with deep blackberry and cassis expression. Layered nuances of espresso bean, crushed anise seed, bay leaf, violet and toasted oak contribute complexity to the sumptuous dark-fruit character.
