Lapostolle Grand Selection Semillon
Lapostolle Grand Selection Semillon is a light delicate yellow with lime hints in colour. It has a subtle nose with ripe fruit such as pears and waxy apple aromas along with some herbaceous hints. In the mouth it has a very bright and clean texture and rich volume, pleasant acidity and a long 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.
Made from 100% Semillon coming from a specific block of 80 year old vines, pre-phylloxera, high density plantation.
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.
