The Winery

Beaulieu Vineyard

Over a hundred years ago, when George de Latour and his wife were on their first visit to the Napa Valley, they exclaimed “beau lieu” upon seeing what would soon be their property. It means “beautiful pace” in French, so beautiful that de Latour promptly sold his business and founded the first four acres of Beaulieu Vineyards, known by many as BV. De Latour did two things that made him a Napa rock star- he imported Phylloxera resistant rootstock from Europe and a revolutionary winemaker born in Russia and trained in France, Andre Tchelistcheff. For over a century, BV has been producing wines that are classic, bold and quintessential Napa Valley.

Tasting Notes

WA91
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rarity is a 250-case, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon to be bottled in magnums after being aged in 100% new French oak. This should have been more impressive given the superb 2013 BV produced. The wine has excellent to outstanding blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, notes of black olive tapenade, cedar wood, underbrush and tobacco leaf. It is medium to full-bodied, has depth and richness, but given the hype, price and "rarity," it is not terribly interesting.
