Wine Maker Notes
Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations. In creating Lapostolle, the family has pursued the same uncompromising approach to quality that made Grand Marnier a global success. Its objective is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroirs of Chile
We want to enhance the best fruit that Casablanca offers with bright acidity and the touch of complexity from the oak. We hand harvested the grapes in small cases of 12 kilos and sent them in refrigerated containers to our winery in Colchagua. We fermented 55% of the juice in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness of the fruit. 45% was fermented and aged for 5 months in used french oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation was pursued.
