AG 92+ Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Bealieu's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is going to need at least a few years to come together. Today the aromatics are incisive, as are the tannins, both hallmarks of a long, cool growing season. The 2011 stands out for its energy, tension and persistence. There is plenty of potential here, but readers will have to be patient. The 2011 finishes with persistent salinity, energy and tension."
Winemaker Notes - "The notably cool 2011 growing season slowed ripening, which fostered complex mineral and floral nuances in the deep fruit expression of our 2011 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. We took extreme care in selecting only the finest lots of this small vintage for our flagship wine. The wine opens with layered aromas of crushed blackberries, dark cherries, bittersweet chocolate and violet. The elegant dark-fruit flavors, supported by firm, supple tannins, pick up distinctive minerality on the palate. Nuances of toffee and toasted oak spices, from aging in 94 percent new French oak barrels, add even more complexity."
