Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot

Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot is complex and intense nose with red and black fruit such as raspberry and blueberries. Dark plums notes and cacao aromas.

Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot has a rich, dense and opulent wine that is packed with succulent, ripe, black fruits with hints of chocolate and Asian spices. Juicy tannins structure, balance acidity and very persistent finish

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.

Apalta Vineyard is located in the wine-producing region of Colchagua Valley, 200 km south west of Santiago, 68 km away from the Pacific Ocean, between the Andes mountain range and the coastal cordillera.

Apalta is not an enclosed valley. It is lodged between the Tinguiririca River, a tributary of the Rapel River, and cordons of the Coastal Cordillera that ends in a “horse shoe” shape.

Both form on the east and west a barrier that delays the arrival of the sun in the morning and attenuates the exposure to the sunlight in the evening.

That position permits a good regulation of the sunshine, escaping the excess heat that is well known in hot climates.

Thanks to the hills that surround the vineyard, the old vines located in the lowest part of the field receive underground water that provides sufficient natural water supply during almost the whole growing season.

Apalta vineyard was planted with Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah from 1920 to 2006.

Some of the oldest blocks planted in 1920, have vines that were brought from France at the end of the 19th century. Apalta is also 100% under Organic and Biodynamic management. lapostolle.com
