Winemaker Notes

The grapes for this special bottling of Chardonnay come from a single vineyard located within the cool micro-climate of the Casablanca Valley, recognized as one of Chiles finest growing areas for white grapes. The rich, velvety texture, exotic fruit character, and beautiful balance are the result of meticulous winemaking by world-renowned French enologist Michel Rolland. Fermented and aged 100% in new oak barrels from Burgundy, followed by 6 months of aging in bottle, this special and rare Chardonnay. Chardonnay Cuvee Alexandre is dedicated to Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, creator of the prestigious Grand Marnier liquer.

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.
