Winemaker Notes

Brilliant red purple color. Ripe red fruit aromas such as berries with some notes of sweet spices and fresh black and white pepper. Medium structure with very nice texture. Juicy tannins and red fruit at the finish.

The ideal companion for grilled red meat and medium seasoned dishes.

Blend: 85% Carmenere, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 4% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

WW 90
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Carmenère—initially mistaken for Merlot in Chile and recently correctly identified via DNA testing—has taken a long time to find is rightful place in the world of wine grapes. While still developing its own stride as Carmenère, the grape variety has shown many recent success stories. The 2013 Lapostolle Casa Grand Selection is such an example of how far the grape has evolved. This wine shows a new world twist, but does not sacrifice the integrity of its old world characteristics—ripe red fruit, savory earth and dried leaves. Pair with lighter meat dishes and enjoy Carmenère as it joins the world of fine wine grapes. Drinks well now. (Tasted: August 18, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Lapostolle Sunset at Lapostolle Vineyards Winery Image

Casa Lapostolle is one of the most dynamic and influential producers of wines in Chile. Founded in 1994 in the Apalta Valley, this family business was created by the French Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet, members of the family who have been recognized for the production of wines and fine liqueurs for generations in the world. In creating Lapostolle, the family has maintained their long-term vision and commitment to quality that is being the key for their worldwide success. The Lapostolle winery is located in Cunaco, Santa Cruz, Colchagua Valley, Chile; and it produce more than 200.000 cases a year of wine sourced from its three vineyards: San José de Apalta from Colchagua Valley, where there are 37 hectares; Atalayas from Casablanca Valley, with 43 hectares; and Las Kuras from the Cachapoal Valley with 101 hectares. The main varieties produced are Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. At Lapostolle, the goal is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French winemaking philosophy and the superb terroirs of Chile. The founders chose Apalta in the Colchagua Valley, because weather and geographical conditions are perfect for producing high quality red wines and they also found blocks of unique vineyards.

Touching the Pacific in the west and stretching up into the Andes on its eastern side, the Rapel Valley is one of the more substantial fine red wine producing regions of Chile and contains both the Colchagua Valley in its south and west and the Cachapoal in its north and east. While it is recognized for its exceptional warm-climate reds, the region does produce some fine Pinot noir and Sauvignon blanc on its coastal side.

Some of the country’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Rapel’s Andean foothills—with significant individualized smaller zones already identified. Soils here are mixtures of loam, clay, and sand; Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, and Merlot are the most prolific varieties throughout the region.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
