Beaulieu Vineyard is one of Napa Valley’s oldest wine estates, best-known for the legendary Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1940.
This month sees Georges de Latour 2018 being launched at a special 82nd anniversary dinner held at the family-owned Beaulieu Garden in Napa Valley.
It is also the second vintage of the wine that will be partially released via the Bordeaux Place, following on from the 2017 wine last year.
Decanter tasted the 2018 vintage at the Maison Joanne négociant house in Bordeaux, and recently spoke via video call to Trevor Durling, the general manager and chief winemaker. He succeeded Jeffrey Stambor in 2017 to become only the fifth person to hold the esteemed title in the 121-year history of the winery.
