Casa Lapostolle

About Casa Lapostolle

Casa Lapostolle is the Chilean project of the Marnier Lapostolle family; makers of the famous Grand Marnier liqueur. They have brought their Old World sensibility to Chile’s top wine regions and the result has been a sterling success. With their flagship Clos Apalta, they have created one of only two southern hemisphere wines to be awarded the top spot on Decanter’s Top 100 list. The other - Penfolds Grange 1995, so it sits in good company.

The estate was founded in 1994 by Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle, the great-granddaughter of the creator of the Grand Marnier. Seeking to explore new frontiers, Alexandra found herself captivated by the magic of the Apalta Valley located in Colchagua, where century-old ungrafted vines basked undisturbed in the quiet golden light. The 60-hectare plot enjoys a microclimate that differs significantly from the rest of Chile, allowing grapes to reach optimal maturity.

The estate produces 2 wines – the Clos Apalta and a second wine, Le Petit Clos. The Clos Apalta has Carménère as the dominant component of the blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and sometimes Petit Verdot making up the rest. Aided by famed consultant Michel Rolland, Clos Apalta quickly gained recognition, with Robert Parker calling the first vintage an “extraordinary wine” and that “serious wine tasters should give it a try”.

Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2014 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (100)

An extremely aromatic and focused Clos Apalta with blackberry, blueberry, floral and hot stone character. Full body, very linear and ultra-fine tannins. Focused and tight. Precise and long. This is the most polished and beautiful definition of this wine ever. You want to drink it now but better in 2020. A blend of carmenére, cabernet sauvignon and merlot.

Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2016 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (99)

This is really focused and refined with fantastic dried flowers and dark berries. Dried-lavender and mint undertones. Medium-to full-bodied with refined and polished tannins that are all together and so focused. Really integrated and melted together on the palate. Compact and very linear. Please give this two or three years to come completely together, but it’s already breathtaking. Better to drink after 2022.

Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2017 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (100)

What a stunning nose of crushed berries, fresh flowers, sandalwood and light vineyard dust. Black olives, too. Very complex. Full-bodied with a beautiful, dense palate of blackberries, chocolate, walnuts and cigar box. Fantastic length and composure. The tannin just rolls over the palate. Very structured. The most classically structured wine ever from here. Goes on for minutes. Outrageous and so polished. A blend of 48% carmenere, 26% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Try after 2025.

Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2018 (6x75cl)

James Suckling (98)

So aromatic and fresh with dried flowers, sweet tobacco and hints of straw. Red fruit, cloves and green peppercorns. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins that are very fresh and refined. Fine, silky and beautiful. Hints of minerals and granite to the dark fruit. Such gorgeous length and beauty. 64% carmenere, 18% cabernet franc and 18% merlot. Extremely long and poised. Cooler wine. From biodynamically grown grapes. Delicious to drink already, but another three to four years will make it even better.
