#5 ON JAMES SUCKLING TOP WINES OF 2017

JAMES SUCKLING 100 POINTS - "An extremely aromatic and focused Clos Apalta with blackberry, blueberry, floral and hot stone character. Full body, very linear and ultra-fine tannins. Focused and tight. Precise and long. This is the most polished and beautiful definition of this wine ever. You want to drink it now but better in 2020. A blend of Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders of the liqueur Grand Marnier, created Casa Lapostolle in 1994 with the ambition to create world-class wines by combining the superb terroir of Chile with their French winemaking philosophy. With Michel Rolland as winemaker consultant, they decided to create Clos Apalta, the flagship of the winery, which debuted with the vintage 1997.

Within just a few years, this wine achieved remarkable international recognition, and was soon considered as being part of the world’s greatest wines. It has now become a standalone wine, with its own specific vineyard in Apalta, and a dedicated winery.

ONE OF THE MOST AWARDED WINES IN THE WORLD
• Five times in the Wine Spectator Top 100, three times in the Top 3
• Clos Apalta is the one and only South American wine which has been #1 of the Wine Spectator Top 100
• Since the creation of the Top 100 only two wines of the Southern hemisphere have been #1: Clos Apalta 2005 and Penfolds Grange 1995.
