Inspiration for our Beaulieu Vineyard Rarities collection came from a special wine that legendary winemaking André Tchelistcheff first crafted in 1968 to show the distinctive, opulent expression of an extraordinarily high-quality vintage. Only three times since has a wine received such an honor at Beaulieu Vineyard, and the 2013 vintage revealed that time has come again.
A limited number of Rarity magnums are available at pre-release.

Each magnum is individually numbered, tissue-wrapped, and delivered in a custom, bespoke box, containing a catalogue that captures the story of this incredible wine.
Total production: 10 barrels | Bottled only in 1.5L magnums | 90% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Petit Verdot
99-points Wine Advocate: "Flirting with perfection, and probably the greatest BV Private Reserve made since 1970, 1968 and 1951, 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. Forget it for a good 5-6 years and drink it over the following 50+ years.” - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
