Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Beaulieu Vineyards, Georges de la Tour, Private Reserve, 2018
Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

A leisurely and successful growing season, no notable heat spikes, and cool evenings allowing ripening through to mid October. This is beautiful, get touch of floral notes, cocoa powder, the classic Rutherford dust, beautiful freshness also, touches of eucalyptus, fresh mint leaf, black cherry and damson, feels classic and yet generous. A touch of resistance to the tannins adds grips and restraint. A brilliant example of what Napa Cabernet can deliver. 95% new French oak, slight upscore from a year ago, confirming just how well these wines age. Trevor Durling winemaker, no external consultant.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is fabulous. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2018 is a fine addition to the lineage of one of Napa Valley's most historic wines. Inky red fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice all open in the glass. Aeration brings out floral top notes, raspberry and a hint of blood orange. There is plenty of depth, but the tannins are finer than they were a few years ago. Shorter time on the skins and a reduction in barrel fermentations really allow the pedigree of these Rutherford sites to come through. The 2018 is sensational.
