Casa Lapostolle Merlot Cuvée Alexandre 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

The must was fermented 14 days at 25-28C. This was followed by an 18 day post-fermentation maceration. All the wine was aged 13 months in new and one year old French oak barrels. Bottled in September 2000. Dense and attractive purple color. Very intense and complex nose of blackberry and cherry with notes of black chocolate and pepper. A deep, mouth-filling wine with explosive richness, integrated oak, smooth tannins and a very long finish.

Dunkles Purpurrot. Aromen von schwarzen und roten Johannisbeeren bestechen mit diskreten Noten von Tabak und Kräutern der Provence. Sehr gute Balance zwischen Eichenholz und Frucht. Der Gaumen wird von intensiven, aber weichen Tanninen geradezu attackiert. Dazu eine feine Säure, die zu einer harmonischen Struktur sowie zu einem besonders langem Abgang verhilft.
