Winemaker Notes

Intense and deep red color with purple edges. Expressive and intense with cassis and black currant aromas. Elegant with round and persistent tannins, with fresh cherry along with a light toast flavor.

Pair with high flavor dishes such as lamb shank with herbs or pork fillet with mustard and honey.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 4% Cabernet Franc.

JS 94
James Suckling
A very complex cabernet with violet, blackcurrant and lavender character. Some mint. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a cedar and hazelnut finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with a field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc planted in 1920 in Apalta. It's a classical expression from Colchagua, with some fennel notes and abundant but fine-grained tannins and good length. 85,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2016.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Juicy, with good cut to the dark cherry, dried blueberry and kirsch flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Coffee bean notes come in midpalate, with dark chocolate accents on the finish. Drink now through 2023.

COMMENTARY: The Lapostolle Cuvée Alexander Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's unmatched values. The 2015 vintage exhibits all of the best traits of the grape variety at a fraction of many of the most known global growing regions. TASTING NOTES: This wine is substantial and finely balanced. Its aromas and flavors of black fruits, savory spices, and oak nuances should pair it well with oven-baked short ribs. (June 12, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Lapostolle Winery Video

Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle (DBL) is one of Chile’s most dynamic and influential winemakers. The Lapostolle family began producing fine wine and spirits in France in 1827. In 1994, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, sixth generation family member, and her husband Cyril de Bournet, were one of the first to see the potential of Apalta Valley’s terroirs in Chile for producing high quality red varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot. In 2005, DBL’s icon wine Clos Apalta made history by becoming the first and only South American wine to date to ever be ranked #1 of the famous Top100 of Wine Spectator. Alexandra and Cyril were joined by their son, Charles de Bournet, in their simple as ambitious goal: to create world-class wines using French winemaking philosophy and the superb terroirs of Apalta. Charles has done extensive work in introducing Syrah and Rose varietals, such as Cinsault and Grenache, terroirs analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Apalta. World renowned winemaker, Michel Rolland, has been consulting at DBL since the beginning and works with Charles to produce wines that express the family’s taste and the unique terroirs of Apalta.

Rapel Valley, Chile

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
