Since 1997, when the first version was conceived as the top wine of Casa Lapostolle, Clos Apalta has created a Chilean paradigm. Winemaker Michel Friou and Pomerol guru Michel Rolland craft this red from old Apalta vines, some reaching 80 years old, some material even older than that. In years like rsquo;97 or rsquo;99, Clos Apalta described the regionrsquo;s terrior with super concentration, enormous generosity of flavors, and decadent lushness. In rsquo;01, the blend includes Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and itrsquo;s the best to date. Mineral and black, the winersquo;s focus reaches beyond ripeness and power toward precise balance at a high level. The texture is round, the chocolate-scented tannins firm and elegant supporting full-on blackberry and cassis flavors. An intriguing mineral character surrounds the fruit, giving complexity and depth. Long and intense, as a young wine itrsquo;s almost a painful pleasure. Built for the cellar.
Full and forceful, with aromas of green herbs piercing the cassis and cherry aromas that carry the bouquet. With molasses, cassis and black-plum flavors, it seems to have all that the wine is known for; however, therersquo;s also a green, tomato-like presence that may stem from the higher level of Carmenegrave;re thatrsquo;s going into the wine.
Stunning purity, with concentrated plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit that just glides across the palate, buttressed by superfine yet muscular tannins. Suave toast, coconut butter and spice notes along with alluring chocolate and black tea hints chime in on the long finish. A superb combination of fruit and elegance. Drink now through 2009.

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.
The Clos Apalta luxury cuvee, primarily based on an old vine, non-irrigated Carmenere parcel, remains one of Chilersquo;s standard-bearers. The medium to full-bodied 2001 Clos Apalta explodes from the glass with powerful scents of black raspberries, cassis liqueur and hints of mocha. An elegant yet immensely ripe wine, it offers spicy black cherry flavors in its bright, high-toned and tannin-laced character. Projected maturity: 2007ndash;2012.
Winemaker Michel Friou, who recently left Lapostolle, fashioned this blend of Carmenegrave;re, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the wineryrsquo;s 49-acre vineyard in the Apalta section of the Colchagua Valley. Old vines, low yields and hand-destemming of the grapes contributed to the winersquo;s combination of power and finesse. A new small winery facility dedicated to this cuveacute;e, the wineryrsquo;s flagship, is now under construction. Owner Alexandra Marnier-Lapostollersquo;s vision has helped drive the estate to the top in Chile.
Tiefrote Farbe mit violetten Nuancen. Intensives Bouquet von roten Früchten, mit frischen Noten von Rosmarin, weissem Pfeffer und süsslicher Würze. Durch die Eiche bestechen feine Vanillearomen mit einem Hauch von Muskat. Am Gaumen angenehm fruchtige und weiche Tannine, gefolgt von frischer Säure und einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.
