"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 Tapestry Reserve Red 2009

    Snoothrank:

    My last bottle and I must say that it took it long to fully open for the fruits to develop an identity. The fruit was mostly red berries with a touch of plum, chocolate accents combine with herbal and earthy notes. Well melded tannins and acidity leave a short aftertaste. 89 points - Paul Read More

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • Okay, in additon to picking up a case of Barolo/Barbaresco via trade from JD back in April, I've been stocking up on bits and pieces of things.  I bought 4 bottles of old vintage Beaulieu from K&L for $30 per, a pair of 1990 and a pair of 1996.  One 1990 went down the drain, one sits in the cellar waiting to see if it suffered the same fate whil...

  • So I have had a ton or two of To Kalon wines over the years, some from makers who did not disclose said on the label because Andy insisted they charge more--the per bottle price structure is not new.  It's great stuff, but not, say, 7x as good as Smith Madrone, which sells for $50 or so.  Or Hendry, which is about the same to you and less to fri...

  • Beaulieu Vineyards Tapestry Reserve 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Deep purple color. Very pleasant nose with some caramel, some berry fruit. Very mellow entry on the tongue. Fair amount of rich fruitblackberry, prune. As the wine passes back, fruitiness declines. Some earthiness, some hint of cinnamon or clove. Tannins are fully resolved. Another easy-to-drink wine. Better than average, but not great. Read More
