Lapostolle Clos Apalta

Clos Apalta is born in 1997 as the iconic wine of the Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle in Chile under the idea to magnify the exceptional terroir of Apalta with French expertise. Shaping the vineyard foot by foot, building a state-of-the-art gravity fed winery, the family succeeded in making Clos Apalta one of the most iconic wines in South America.

This year we had a generous production, healthy, of excellent flavor, with relatively moderate alcohol levels and more freshness. It will be remembered as one of the greatest cold vintages of the 21st century in Chile.

“It was a wonderful harvest … 2018 was everything that you could wish for to make wines that are fully ripe but have a lot of elegance and freshness. A treat from Mother Nature”. Andrea Leon, Chief Winemaker.

Made with Organic Grapes and Biodynamic vineyard management.

Lapostolle Le Petit Clos de Clos Apalta

In 2014, Clos Apalta gave birth to its second wine, Le Petit Clos de Clos Apalta, in order to offer a different interpretation of this unique terroir, using the same grapes, but in different proportion, and offering young vines a chance to prove their worth before thay can make it into the Grand Vin.
The 2017 vintage was shaped by extreme conditions which promoted deadly, tinderbox conditions for the propagation of devastating wildfires, with a total of 600,000 hectares of forest, but Apalta vines were spared and suffered no smoke damage, which was soon confirmed on tasting the different parcels of grapes.
In the end, conditions for ripening were excellent and consistent with a classic year.

“Le Petit Clos is a different interpretation of the Clos Apalta Terroir, using the mastery of blending that is the heart of the winemaking philosophy from the Domaines Bournet ”. – Jacques Begarie, Chief Winemaker.

Made with Organic Grapes and Biodynamic vineyard management.
