AG 94 WS 93 WA 93 WE 92 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite, violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last year."
According to Wine Spectator - "Delightfully pure and flavorful, with generous plum, blueberry and blackberry notes, framed by solid yet friendly tannins. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors sail on. Best from 2014 through 2025. 7,400 cases made."
According to Robert Parker - "The strongest vintage since the 2007 is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour. This beautifully ripe wine boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of cassis, kirsch, cedarwood, foresty and background vanilla notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and moderately high tannins. Given the richer fruit concentration, the tannins are easily balanced and do not interfere with currant drinkability or the potential for the wine to be cellared for two decades or more."
Tasting Notes - "Combining elegance and power, the 2010 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with deep, ripe aromas of crushed blackberries, dark cherries, bittersweet chocolate and violet. The highly saturated, black-fruit flavors echo the aromas as they expand across the palate and persist on the finish. Nuances of toffee and toasted oak spices, from aging in 100 percent new French oak barrels, add even more complexity."
