Lot #583. BV Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve 1979

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 ST.
"Good full deep red. Complex if rather subdued aromas of cassis, cherry, spices, flowers and loam, plus a freshening eucalyptus note that was probably due to a row of eucalyptus trees planted next to the BV #3 vineyard (now Andy Beckstoffer's Georges III vineyard), which at the time was part of the Georges de Latour blend. Vibrant red berry and spice flavors convey noteworthy energy for a 40-year-old bottle. The wine's intriguing spicy complexity carries through on the finish, which features distinctly firm tannins that turned a bit dusty in the glass. This wine gives the impression of being in a state of suspended animation. (13% alcohol)" Vinous, Apr 2019
Provenance: The Jardin Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, very lightly scuffed, lightly corroded, nicked capsule, very lightly damp stained, very lightly bin soiled label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $130
