Winemaker Elizabeth Delouise Notes
The 2005 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon expresses immensely concentrated layers of brambly blackberry, black cherry and dark plum character. Complex nuances of mocha and black licorice mingle with toasty vanilla oak from barrel aging. Gentle precision winemaking assures that no single character predominates in the beautifully integrated aromas and flavors. This wine's opulent flavors, structured with mouthcoating, velvety tannins, are best shown with equally rich entrées, such as filet mignon, or with an elegant cheese course.

Our winemaking techniques have continued to evolve since the first Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon in 1936, bringing even more complexity and bal ...more... ance to this renowned and highly collected wine. We handcrafted the wine using pre-fermentation maceration, gentle punch-downs during fermentation in open-top fermenters, in-barrel malolactic fermentation and 20 months of barrel aging.
