Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Always a good value in Chardonnay from one of Chile's top producers. Very clean and precise with nice hints of peach, melon and a touch of toast. In a class with many California Chardonnays that cost twice as much.

This is ripe and moderately toasty white, exhibiting flavors of creamy fig, pear and brioche, followed by a lush finish that shows a lingering note of hazelnut. Drink now.

Light gold. Exotic aromas of smoked meat, poached pear, yellow plum and oak spices. Weighty but precise on the palate, offering lively citrus and pit fruit flavors and a jolt of candied licorice. The oak spice repeats on the finish, which is broad and gently sweet.

Pale gold. Impressively complex bouquet evokes smoky pear, peach, iodine and truffle; smells like a wine from Chassagne-Montrachet. Juicy pit fruit flavors are firmed by dusty minerals, picking up slight warmth on the close. A rich, palate-staining and very persistent chardonnay, but the element of heat is bothersome.

This has solid concentration to the pear, fig and spice notes, with restrained toast carrying the lengthy finish. Has the fruit to win over most folks, and the nuance to hold them. Drink now through 2003.

Rich and stylish, with pear, fig, hazelnut and brioche notes that run through the rich, lengthy finish. A nice mineral hint really stretches it out. Drink now.
