Winemaker Notes

Number 3 of Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100 Wines!

Color: The color is intense and the density is readily apparent.

Aroma: The bouquet provides an explosion of red fruit, blackberry, black cherry and vibrant notes of raspeberry. The oak aging contributes a toasted vanilla and balsamic-like element in the nose. Then, instead of dispersing, all the scents blend together to give greater complexity, precious wood and cedar notes.

Flavor: In the mouth, the first impression is density and volume. The wine is round, full and very concentrated. Slowly, a gentle tannic structure appears which provides the wine with a solid and well-structured character. The finish is long, velvety and silky.

WS 94
Wine Spectator
A stunner. This coats the palate with cassis, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, but stays focused and pure, with vanilla, spice and toast notes chiming in on the palate for added effect. The finish then resonates with purity. A thoroughly seductive wine that glides effortlessly, despite its obvious power and depth. Carmenère, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2009.
JS 94
James Suckling
This is a fabulous bottle with ripe fruit and chocolate character. Full body and so rich and decadent. Old style yet balanced. A blend of 65% merlot/carmenere and 35% cabernet sauvignon.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Clos Apalta luxury cuvee, primarily based on an old vine, non-irrigated Carmenere parcel, remains one of Chile’s standard-bearers. Herbal, minty aromas of candied black fruits are found in the aromatic profile of the 2000 Clos Apalta. A feminine, detailed wine, it exhibits a medium to full-bodied character filled with pure red as well as black cherry fruit. Fresh, lively, and lush, this outstanding effort displays a slightly firm finish that will require some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012.

Clos Apalta Clos Apalta Winery Winery Image

Everything starts in 1994 when Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet first arrived in Chile’s Colchagua Valley. They quickly realized its potential for producing world-class wines. This ideal setting, which was revitalized in 1995, was home to vines originating from pre-phylloxera rootstock brought from Bordeaux in the middle of XIX century. Member of a renowned family that has been dedicated for several generations to the production of high-quality spirits and wines, Alexandra with legendary wine expertise, brought exceptional French winemaking practices to Chile and pioneered the development of fine quality wines from the region. Today it is Charles de Bournet Marnier Lapostolle, seventh generation of the family, who holds the reins of the Winery. Together with him is Jacques Begarie, Technical Director & Winemaker, under the advice of the famous winemaker Michel Rolland, who is personally involved in the whole production of Clos Apalta. In its short history, Clos Apalta wines have consistently ranked highly (90+ points) among reputable wine trade publications, a testament of the rigorous standards implemented at the winery to produce outstanding wines. Clos Apalta's philosophy is as simple as it is ambitious: to express terrois in the wines, looking for excellence, elegance and character in a handcrafted wine that can talk about the amazing place that is the Apalta Valley.
