Beaulieu Vineyards Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1973

Napa Valley, California, United StatesTasted several times over the year, this one in August July 2023 at the winery. The colour is classic rusty orange, as in old and fading but still hanging in there. The nose has a mix of maderized notes with toffee, dried plums and resin, giving way to Rutherford Dust and earth in the finish. It is still alive but is best with more straightforward beef dishes, slow cooked, or a piece of mature Brie. It gets a score of 89 for hanging in there. Still, it is more about history at this point and respect for the forethought of winemaker André Tchelistcheff, who coincidentally retired from Beaulieu in 1973, 45 years after he arrived at the winery.Tasted: 06 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
