Description

Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2016

Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay is bright yellow with a golden edge. Incredible bouquet of sweet cloves, lychee and quince. The palate is intense and elegant with a fresh acidity and vibrant finish. Quince, apricots and papaya fruit mingle with delicate honey, clove and vanilla notes. Closes in a long finish.

100% Chardonnay. The fruit for this wine comes from Lapostolle’s Atalayas Vineyard in Casablanca Valley. Casablanca Valley is 27.5km away from the coast and 76 km west from Santiago, right in the Coastal Cordillera. Pinot Noir was first planted here in 1997. The vineyard experiences a strong influence from the cool coastal wind and has a very low annual rainfall, which is good for the slow maturity of the grapes.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 A juicy and rich chardonnay with sliced apple and pear character. Hints of cream and toasted oak. Full body, round texture, and delicious fruit. A layered white with freshness and complexity.

– 90 POINTS

 Picked late for the Casablanca Valley, despite using fruit from the cooler end of the valley, this is a rich, deeply coloured Chardonnay with 20% new wood, creamy, leesy, honeyed flavours and some supporting acidity. 2019-21.

 The classical barrel-fermented 2016 Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay is from a zone they think is ideal for this style, Casablanca, where they have 35 hectares of Chardonnay. It’s quite ripe and oaky for a cool year like 2016, hedonistic and showy, with more acidity than it usually has. It now doesn’t go through malolactic fermentation.
