Winemaker's Notes:

Light straw-green color. In light of BVs French heritage, our Sauvignon Blanc shows Graves-like aromas of herbs, lemon, flinty earthiness and coconut-vanilla from the oak. Good acidity lends finesse to the fine mineral-citrus flavors. Bright yet intense, this is a wine that should improve in the bottle for 4-5 years.

About Beaulieu Vineyard:

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistent French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.
