Winemaker Notes

The Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Carmenere is an intense purple red color. Complex aromas with red and black fruit such as maqui berry and spices such as red pepper, vanilla and dill. The palate is full, of medium acidity and round tannins with fruit such as sarsaparilla and maqui berry. Medium long finish.

Ideal for dishes such as rabbit roulade with mint and apricot or four-cheese pasta with truffles with grated truffles.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling

Intense carmenere aromas of crushed dark berries and cherries with dried flowers that follow through to a medium to full body with firm, silky tannins and a racy finish. Drink or hold.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The intensely varietal 2019 Cuvée Alexandre Carmenère has pungent aromas and flavors, cracked black peppercorns, cigar ash, tea and tobacco leaves. It contains 12% Syrah in the blend, which probably rounds things up. It's medium to full-bodied with fine-grained, abundant tannins. It's powerful and balanced.

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.

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.
