Lapostolle 'Cuvee Alexandre' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Lapostolle 'Cuvee Alexandre' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 excellent value

Tasting Notes

Jan 2019 - The 2015 Cuvee Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon maintains good freshness and vibrancy while offering dense, concentrated fruit. The nose has an amalgam of rich dark currant fruit underscored with notes of mint, loam, tobacco spice, a touch of bay leaf and fennel aromatically. Medium fuller to fuller bodied this has good density and fruit weight with nicely integrated tannins supporting the dark fruit flavors that are nuanced with tobacco and graphite on the finish. Just now starting to open up and this should drink impressively over the next 2-3 years quite easily. This represents outstanding value.

A very complex cabernet with violet, blackcurrant and lavender character. Some mint. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a cedar and hazelnut finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

91 pts Wine Advocate Issue #239 Oct 2018
The 2015 Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with a field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc planted in 1920 in Apalta. It's a classical expression from Colchagua, with some fennel notes and abundant but fine-grained tannins and good length.
