Casa Lapostolle Merlot 2000
Lapostolle was founded by the legendary family behind Grand Marnier. Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle brought French winemaking practices to Chile, where she was a pioneer in leading the development of fine quality wines. The winery uses organic and biodynamic practices, and the wines are consistently rated 90+ points. Most recently, Wine Enthusiast named Lapostolle “New World Winery of the Year” in 2008.
Drank this in 2009. The wine was probably on the decline, but was still quite drinkable and interesting. The fruit was very subdued and the acidity seemed a tad too high. The tannins were smooth.
Spectator Review: "The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon displays herb-tinged dark fruit aromas as well as flavors. This medium-bodied wine coats the palate with its blackberry-dominated personality then tightens to a slightly rustic finish..."
Great wine for an amazing winegrowing region
