Cuvee Alexandre 006877 Casa Lapostolle Chard Cuvee Alexander 2008
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.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
a little more round, spice and currant characteristics
I normally like Carmenere wines but this falls horribly flat at the end. Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010.
This wine was nice and layered. Very tasty. - WS Grand Tour 2011
Nice Chardonnay a little more 'toasty' on the back than I wanted...but I do want to try this again
i am lost to as why it is described as a 'dessert' wine. not at all, but a solid, dinner wine.
Complex, red fruit and cherry yields to prune with a backdrop of oak. Finishes with slight chalk. Tannins are well structured but slightly overbearing. Melliws well with some air to make a fine table wine.
Consistently an amazing wine. this one is a little young, but based on the track record of the wine, I am sure will show its stuff in a few years.

Winemakers Notes:Nose: Expressive nose, with spices, red and black fruit, some smoky tones, chocolate and herbal notes at the end.Palate: Smooth and well balanced tannins, with a good structure and a long finish.
In der Nase attraktiv und sehr intensive Aromen wie Früchte, schwarzer Pfeffer und Gewürze. Im Gaumen überzeugt er durch aussergewöhnliche Konzentration. Ein herrlicher Wein mit einem langen Finish.
"Casa Lapostolle Merlot Rapel 2008 is of deep ruby red. It contains red fruit and sweet spices
A touch creamy and fat on the bouquet, but backed by peach and tangerine flavors that sing of ripeness. Finishes scouring and tangy, but incredibly fresh.
"Casa Lapostolle Chardonnay 2008 wine is bright light yellow with subtle lime notes. Its nose has expressive aromas of tropical fruit and sweet citrus fruit. It contains touches of honeycomb and elegant sweet spices which add an extra layer of complexity. The palate is of good volume and density
Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries and candied cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of potpourri and minerals. Fresh, finely etched red currant and raspberry flavors are given spine by tangy minerals and framed by silky tannins. Impressively precise on the finish, which repeats the mineral note.
Chunky Cab, with dark raspberry and blackberry fruit pushed by firm cocoa and toast notes. More dark, bacony toast on the finish. Solid, if a bit square in the end. Drink now through 2008.
