Casa Lapostolle

About Casa Lapostolle

Casa Lapostolle is the Chilean project of the Marnier Lapostolle family; makers of the famous Grand Marnier liqueur. They have brought their Old World sensibility to Chile’s top wine regions and the result has been a sterling success. With their flagship Clos Apalta, they have created one of only two southern hemisphere wines to be awarded the top spot on Decanter’s Top 100 list. The other - Penfolds Grange 1995, so it sits in good company.

The estate was founded in 1994 by Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle, the great-granddaughter of the creator of the Grand Marnier. Seeking to explore new frontiers, Alexandra found herself captivated by the magic of the Apalta Valley located in Colchagua, where century-old ungrafted vines basked undisturbed in the quiet golden light. The 60-hectare plot enjoys a microclimate that differs significantly from the rest of Chile, allowing grapes to reach optimal maturity.

The estate produces 2 wines – the Clos Apalta and a second wine, Le Petit Clos. The Clos Apalta has Carménère as the dominant component of the blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and sometimes Petit Verdot making up the rest. Aided by famed consultant Michel Rolland, Clos Apalta quickly gained recognition, with Robert Parker calling the first vintage an “extraordinary wine” and that “serious wine tasters should give it a try”.
