Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Chardonnay 2013
- Intense fruit aromas of sweet citrus fruit, white flowers, fresh tropical fruits and sweet spices.
- Elegant and concentrated in the mouth, with a creamy texture balanced by a crisp citrussy edge.
- The grapes for this single-vineyard wine are sourced exclusively from the biodynamically-farmed Atalayas Vineyard in the Casablanca Valley. Its rolling hills offer steep exposures which are the source of an array of mesoclimates. The soils are of a granite origin, slightly acidic, with low fertility. Sensitive to erosion, they need to be protected by green cover management. The grapes were carefully hand-harvested in the early hours of the morning over a period of about a month, and transported to the winery in refrigerated trucks.
- Winery For the 2009 vintage, there was forty-seven percent whole cluster pressing and fifty-three percent of maceration into the press before fermentation. Just over half the juice was fermented in new and used French barrels, while the rest was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following fermentation, the barrel-fermented juice was aged in barrels for ten months (36% new oak) with lees stirring twice a month. Twenty percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.

Fantastic colour. Clear hints of jasmine. Very long aftertaste.
Take it with a seafood.
We drank it at a meeting with friends.
I bought it a while ago from this site.
A classic one.

Nice and pretty colour. Casa Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay recalls white fruit. A little too acid although it depends on the taste of each person.
Perfect for rice with vegetables. They had it in a wine bar. That white is perfect for special occasions.
The most acidic of Casa Lapostolle.
