Intense purple color. Expressive nose full of fresh red fruit along with tobacco, cedar and tea leaf towards the finish. Fresh attack on the palate and a medium body. Finishing with very juicy tannins. The goal of Casa Lapostolle is to produce world-class wines. Strict adherence to traditional French winemaking techniques, combined with state-of-the-art facilities and the superb Chilean soil and climate, have led to highly praised wines of the greatest character.
The Marnier Lapostolle family, creator of Grand Marnier, the famed French Liqueur, founded Casa Lapostolle winery in 1994. Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, Chairwoman of Casa Lapostolle, led the design and creation. She recruited two French enologists, world-renowned winemaker Michel Rolland and on-site winemaker Michel Friou. Together they oversee all aspects of the winery from vineyard management, harvesting, vinification and blending for all the wines in the portfolio.
