Georges de Latour has been BV’s benchmark Rutherford Cabernet since 1936, which isn’t a bad run from this outstanding terroir. Suckling marks this vintage as one of the most balanced with its currants, minerals, fresh herbs and spices. Fans of brawny Cabs with lush fruit and “Rutherford Dust” will want to lock down a few bottles of this impressive red to keep on hand for all the steak dinners ahead.

James Suckling

This is one of the most balanced Georges de Latour, offering currants, minerals, fresh herbs and spices. It’s full-bodied with very fine tannins. Long and focused. Subtle and complex. Very elegant and refined in the end. Reminds me of classic, old vintages from the 1960s and 1970s.
