2013 Beaulieu Vineyards 'Rarity' Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 1.5L (magnum) OWC
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. Bounty Hunter secured 6 of the 18 bottles released to the trade in California. Should you be looking for a vinous heirloom to pass on to your heirs 50 years from now, this is it.
BV is back, and the critics say they are better than ever. Disregarded for decades as an international corporation content with slinging pallets of juice to every big retail outlet in the country, BV is here to remind you that Georges de LaTour himself was the O.P. (Original Pioneer) of the Napa Valley back in 1938. Throw in the one-and-only Michel Rolland to lead the party and map the course, and they're once again showing the kind of moxie that put them at the top of the mountain in the first place. The air is sweet up here... grab your 12-pack and join us at the summit!About Beaulieu Vineyard
