"Beau lieu" - A Beautiful Story about a Beautiful Place In 1900, when Georges de Latour's wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it "beau lieu," or "beautiful place." Shortly thereafter, de Latour sold his thriving cream of tartar business, bought the four-acre ranch and founded Beaulieu Vineyard with the vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival those of his native France. De Latour quickly made a name for himself by importing Phylloxera-resistant rootstock from Europe to the recently-ravaged fledgling California wine industry. He also began selling wine to the Catholic Church, establishing a strong relationship that would allow Beaulieu Vineyard to become the only Napa Valley winery to remain in business during Prohibition. In fact, during Prohibition the winery increased its business. After the repeal in 1933, de Latour began searching for someone who could contribute European winemaking Read more »

  • Beaulieu Vineyard Bv Tapestry 2011


    The 2011 BV Tapestry is ready to roll, as model railroaders used to say. This is a lighter style wine, with a good, dark cherry robe and nose of cedar plank, cassis and a hint of vanilla. Entry is pleasant, with blackberry, vanilla and very light tannin on the palate. Very understated. Finish is medium long and European in mouthfeel. 90. Read More

  • Beaulieu Vineyard Merlot Rutherford Maestro Collection 2002


    Lots of upfront jammy red fruit. Also noticeable "smokiness." Clearly, some oxidation, and that may be the smoky thing I'm getting. Still some tannin. I doubt this was ever more than an adequate wine. However, I am OK with it--especially, considering the sketchy storage provenance of this wine. Read More

    This was superb with dark berry fruits, wood, dirt, chocolate, pepper, mint and tobacco and healthy tannins and acidity. I'd say this has 2-3 more years to go. Paul - 92 points Read More
