Description: Lapostolle Wines was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. Alexandra is a member of the renowned family that has been dedicated for several generations to the production of high-quality wines in France. After visiting Chile, Alexandra and Cyril not only fell in love with the Colchagua Valley, they also detected the enormous potential of the country to produce premium wines due to its exceptional geographical character. The Lapostolle Grand Selection is sourced from the Rapel Valley, located in the central part of Chile, including the sub valleys of Cachapoal and Colchagua.
Deep garnet color with burgundy accents. Aromas of ripe cassis, bay leaves, and cardamom. On the palate the wine displays bell pepper, raspberry-strawberry fruit with undertones of bell pepper, toasted oak, and loam. Very nice easy drinking wine with low tannins and balanced acid/ alcohol levels.
