Von tief intensivem Dunkelrot in der Farbe, besticht er in der Nase durch eine Explosion von roten Früchtearomen, mit einem rauchigen und würzigen Unterton. Toastige Noten der Eiche ergänzen die Frucht optimal. Im Gaumen wirkt er besonders dicht und ist voll im Körper. Die feinen Tanninen sind abgerundet und verleihen dem Wein einen langen, samtigen Abgang. Ein vollaromatischer Wein mit grosser Persönlichkeit, zum jetzt trinken oder für eine weitere Lagerung über Jahre!


Winemaker's Notes:

Casa Lapostolle has been founded by the Marnier Lapostolle family from France and the Rabat family from Chile in 1994, through Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, her husband Cyril de Bournet and Don José Rabat Gorchs. Today, Casa Lapostolle is 100% owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle group. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, are known for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has been also involved in winemaking for generations. Originally winegrowers in the Loire Valley, the Marnier Lapostolle continue this vintner tradition today as owners of Château de Sancerre. The Cuvée Alexandre wines come from the Atalayas Vineyard in Casablanca, which is located on slopes facing different directions. This gives a great complexity once all the different parcels have been assembled into the final blend. This Syrah has an expressive nose of pepper, black and red fruit, and meaty notes. Round and velvety in the mouth, with elegant oak and a long, resonant finish.
