The wonderful 2014 vintage gave our Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon its beautiful fresh fruit character and rich, full-bodied structure. Hugely complex and expressive, the wine reveals a broad spectrum of juicy briary black currant, cherry and cassis notes, with nuances of cedar, sandalwood and mocha. Muscular tannins support the plush, expansive palate, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy. Well-integrated notes of caramel and toasted oak spices—from aging in new French oak barrels—heighten the aromas and linger on the finish. To enjoy this wine at its full potential, we recommend at least five years of bottle aging; if you can’t wait, however, decant before serving.
At our state-of-the-art winery, dedicated exclusively to the crafting of the Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine was fermented in a combination of 55 percent new French oak barrels to provide early integration of fruit and oak character into the blend and enhance the dense, rich texture. The balance of the must was fermented in stainless steel and upright wood fermenters which preserves the freshness of the fruit. Following judicious extended skin contact and in-barrel malolactic fermentation, the wine was pressed and returned to barrels for aging. A small amount of Petit Verdot and Merlot was blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon to further enhance the wine’s aroma and flavor profile.
