Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Chardonnay

Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Chardonnay 2015 is bright yellow with golden edge. On the nose there is incredible expression. Florals and sweet spices as honey, apricot, vanilla and delicate notes of fresh fruit such as papaya and quince. The palate is intense and elegant, with high volume in the mouth, fresh acidity and vibrant finish.  Serve at 12 ° C (53 ° F). Serve with gizzards grilled with lemon dressing, grouper fish gratin and octopus with prawns.

Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994.

The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations.

In creating Lapostolle, the family has pursued the same uncompromising approach to quality that made Grand Marnier a global success.

Its objective is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroirs of Chile.

Rapel Valley is located in the central part of Chile. It includes the sub Valleys of Cachapoal and Colchagua. It exhibits a semi – arid Mediterranean climate with a winter – only rainfall pattern. During the growing season, we have warm and dry days and the nights are pleasantly cool as a result of the flow of cold breezes coming from the Andes Range.

They wanted to keep the aromatic profile of the Semillon with a twist of the oak complexity. They hand harvested 100% of the grapes. Then they carefully crushed them. Natural decantation then in tanks, slow and low temperature fermentation. 60% of the wine went through 5 months of ageing in French oak barrels with lees steering. The result is a wine that kept is natural flavour and acidity with a round texture in the mouth, and the delicate notes of sweet spices from the oak.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
