Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2011
Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle named Cuvee Alexandre after her great-grandfather, founder of Grand Marnier. This is hand harvested and hand de-stemmed. Merlot or Syrah (here, 15% Syrah) added to enhance the aromatics of the Carmenere, and the wine is aged for 9 months in a mix of old and new French oak. It is a wonderful expression of the Apalta Vineyard terroir.
JS96: This is a great red with polished tannins that have tension and intensity, making you want to drink it. Shows wonderful reserve and focus. Precision winemaking. A blend of carmenere, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Always one of the top wines of Chil
