Winemaker Notes

#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2014 and the 2005 vintage of this wine was #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008

Dark and deep inky purple red color. Still young, but opening on the nose towards ripe and expressive red and black fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and blueberries. Also, spices such as vanilla, clover and white pepper. With a concentrated structure, this wine has a round and packed attack followed by velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a ripe and rich long lasting finish.

Open and leave to breathe for a couple of hours or carefully decant for minimum 1 hour and enjoy at room temperature; 16 to 18ºC (60 to 65°F). This wine is an ideal companion for game, lamb, and entrecote fillet. Also good with rich cocoa chocolate deserts.

Blend: 71% Carmenere, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

JS 97
James Suckling
The aromas in this wine are phenomenal with slate, blackberry, blue granite and lead pencil. Violet too. Full body, with seamless tannins and dense and reserved structure. It needs about three or four years to soften. 100% new wood and aged 26 months. From 71% carmenere, 15% cabernet sauvignon, and 11% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Big and rich, this red is filled with powerful flavors of blackberry, dark currant, black olive and dark chocolate that are built on an ironclad frame. Notes of cocoa powder and cream chime in as well, and the muscular finish lingers with hints of savory herb. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2022.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Alluring aromas of cigar box, cedar shavings, olive and berry fruits are magnetic with this Carmenère-led blend. In its youth, it is pushy and vibrant in the mouth. Flavors of tobacco, chocolate and leafy, lightly herbal berry fruits finish smooth, long and with just enough acidic cut. Drink through 2022.

The 2010 Lapostolle Clos Apalta is quite a luxurious red wine. Layered, with loads of ripe fruit and oak, this wine shows plenty of tannins still. The wine's lasting richness makes it a superb candidate with well-charred beef. Drinking well now. (Tasted: August 18, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

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.
