A tradition begun by the great Maestro," André Tchelistcheff, has returned for the grand 2013 vintage. We are honored to present you with a Magnum of a cuvée that Beaulieu has only made in truly great vintages, such as 1968, 1973, 1979, and 1990.

This wine is a barrel selection of the finest lots from the BV1 and BV2 vineyards that typically are destined for the Georges de Latour Private Reserve. Parker was unusually effusive in his praise:

"Flirting with perfection… this wine is magical. Inky purple/ black, with a gorgeous nose of pen ink, cedar wood, vanillin, crème de cassis, and blacker fruits, there’s some forest floor, full-bodied richness, and super-high extract and tannins. It is a massive wine, highly extracted, and built for long, long-term cellaring…"

Only 249 cases were made, bottled exclusively in magnum, and presented in a gorgeously crafted black case with a working lock and key. Should you be looking for a vinous heirloom to pass on to your heirs 50 years from now, this is it.

Wine Advocate

Flirting with perfection, and probably the greatest BV Private Reserve made since 1970, 1968 and 1951, this wine is magical. Inky purple/black, with a gorgeous nose of pen ink, cedar wood, vanillin, crème de cassis, and blacker fruits, there’s some forest floor, full-bodied richness, and super-high extract and tannins. It is a massive wine, highly extracted, and built for long, long-term cellaring. Forget it for a good 5-6 years and drink it over the following 50+ years.
