94 points "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite, violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last year. (Antonio Galloni) Wine Spectator -- 93pts Delightfully and flavorful, with generous plum, blueberry and blackberry notes, framed by solid yet friendly tannins. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors sail on. Best from 2014 through 2025. Wine Advocate -- 93pts The strongest vintage since the 2007 is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour. This beautifully ripe wine boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of cassis, kirsch, cedarwood, foresty and background vanilla notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and moderately high tannins. Given the richer fruit concentration, the tannins are easily balanced and do not interfere with currant drinkability or the potential for the wine to be cellared for two decades or more."

93 points "Rated: 93 by Stephen Tanzer, May 12, 2012 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spice, complemented by a very ripe chocolatey quality. Broad, lush and ripe on the palate, a step beyond the winery's other 2009s in texture and depth. Wonderfully fine-grained wine in the style of the year, with ripe cassis and chocolate flavors offering early appeal. The wine's dusty, ripe tannins spread out to saturate the palate. Accessible now but with the stuffing and structure to age for 15 or 20 years." Best 2014-2026
