"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.

    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

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
