Lapostolle:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

I normally like Carmenere wines but this falls horribly flat at the end. Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010.

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.

This unique five-grape blend is deep and succulent, with pastry, berry jam and cassis aromas. Its thick but carries enough acidity to be balanced just right. Tastes of baked blackberry, chocolate, mocha and licorice. Rich and sticky on the finish, but not gooey or cloying. Drink now through 2013; Carmenère with Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 92 PointsA dark, toasty style, delivering broad notes of smoke, spice cake and melted licorice coating macerated blackberry, cassis and kirsch fruit character. Fine tannins add needed support to the long finish. Carmenère, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2013. 448 cases made. JM - Wine Spectator Magazine 89 Points

"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
