André Tchelistcheff joined Beaulieu Vineyard in 1938; soon after, he tasted the family’s “personal” wine, which they called their Private Reserve, and insisted the Cabernet Sauvignon would become the winery’s flagship wine. Two years later, BV released the first bottling of the Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, celebrated today as Napa Valley’s first “Cult” Cabernet for over 80 years.

Today, André’s name is synonymous with winemaking prestige and brilliance, and the 2019 vintage made by Trevor Durling was recently awarded a 100-Point score from James Suckling and was #1 on his top 100 wines of the year. André coined the term “Rutherford dust” because of the unique aroma that gives the wine a provenance that only the elements of this site-specific terroir can create. And as a side note, Joel Aiken, who trained alongside André and made wine at BV for 27 years, is part of our weekly tasting panel providing invaluable insight.

2019 BEAULIEU VINEYARDS GEORGES DE LATOUR PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

"Wow! The aromas to this are really exceptional, with a tangerine edge to the blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil, flowers and wet earth. It changes all the time. So expressive and refined. Full-bodied with great intensity and depth of fruit. The ultra-fine tannins display millions of layers. The texture on the palate is superb and lasts for minutes. This is the new 1974 George de Latour, which was a legend. Real Napa Valley red here. Drinkable now, to understand it, but truly great in five to six years and onwards. Benchmark."
100 Points, #1 Top 100 Wines of 2022
"Another stunning vintage of this classic wine, blended with 9% Petit Verdot, this wine is dark and brooding in black cherry, cassis and currant, with a rich nose of baking spice. Lengthy and generous in tannin, it shows a backbone of ageworthy structure and complexity, with a lasting thread of dark chocolate. Enjoy best from 2029–2039."
97 Points, "Cellar Selection"
"Fragranced and richly fruited on the nose, vivid and vibrant. Smooth yet with crunchy fruit, this makes an immediate impression. Exuberant, racy and fruit forward with a sense of detail and character. I like the soft floral touches, the sweet blackcurrants and red berry elements, the chalky, minty fresh edges as well as some wild thyme and bay leaf herbal notes and a soft dusting of coffee and cocoa powder. Lots of tension still but also richness and concentration. The powdery yet also fleshy texture is so captivating and together with a mouthwatering capacity gives this wine such star power. Elegant and refined with supreme freshness and a real sense of vibrancy..."
