yr. 2009 Jeannie Cho Lee:

92 of 100 Points.

"Jeannie Cho Lee" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 2009 on 29.08.2013 with 92 of 100 points.

"Tasted this wine served straight from the bottle and another portion decanted for 30-45 minutes and the decanted wine tasted much more open and attractive. Full bodied red with layers of concentrated dark berry and sweet oak flavours that requires at least an hour of decanting. Still very young - wait 2-3 years before enjoying. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink."

yr. 2016 Patricio Tapia - Descorchados:

96 of 100 Points.

"Patricio Tapia - Descorchados" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2016 on 01.01.2021 with 96 of 100 points.

"Clos Apalta es el vino top de la casa. Su primera cosecha fue en 1997 y desde entonces ha sido un paradigma de los vinos de estilo amplio, suculento y maduro de Sudamérica. Este año es una mezcla de 64% carménère, 19% cabernet sauvignon y 17% merlot. Mientras el cabernet y carménère son de viñas plantadas entre 1910 y 1945, el merlot se plantó sobre las laderas bastante más tarde, en 2005, y es lo único allí, pues todo lo demás está plantado en los suelos planos y graníticos de la zona. Una cosecha más fría le ha dado a este Clos un aire fresco, de frutas rojas. Sigue siendo un vino amplio, suculento, pero esta vez acompañado de taninos firmes y acidez punzante. El vino tiene dos años en barricas nuevas y eso, por cierto, se siente. Denle tiempo. Este vino debiera comenzar a mostrar mayor complejidad luego de tres a cuatro años de botella."

yr. 2017 Patricio Tapia - Descorchados:

95 of 100 Points.

"Patricio Tapia - Descorchados" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2017 on 01.01.2021 with 95 of 100 points.

"2017 fue una cosecha muy cálida en el Valle Central chileno, y eso ha sido muy adecuado para el estilo de los vinos de la casa. En especial, para el clásico Clos Apalta que, con esta cosecha, cumple sus primeros 20 años de vida, siempre bajo el mando del consultor de Pomerol, Michel Rolland. La esencia del estilo no ha cambiado, y siempre se ha basado en viejas parras de carménère de Apalta. Este año tiene un 48% de carménère, 26% de cabernet sauvignon, 25% de merlot y 1% de petit verdot. Pero hablando del estilo, quizás ya no tiene los alcoholes tremendos de sus primeros años ni tampoco la extracción intensa de entonces. Sin embargo, la sensación de untuosidad y opulencia es casi la misma, sobre todo en una cosecha cálida como 2017. Un vino que llena la boca con sus sabores a frutas negras, sus especias, su madera. Si gustan de ese estilo, esta es una de las cúspides."

yr. 2014 Patricio Tapia - Descorchados:

95 of 100 Points.

"Patricio Tapia - Descorchados" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2014 on 01.01.2021 with 95 of 100 points.

"Esta nueva versión de Clos Apalta tiene un 48% de carménère, 31% de cabernet sauvignon, y un 21% de merlot, que ha madurado muy bien este caluroso 2014. Además de ser una mezcla de cepas, Clos Apalta es también una mezcla de viñedos, algunos de ellos muy antiguos (especialmente en carménère y cabernet) que datan de 1920. El vino se cría en barricas nuevas por 26 meses, un tiempo largo que se ha justificado por la estructura potente de la cosecha. Había carne aquí como para aguantar la madera nueva. Comparado con los primeros Clos, es indudable que este vino se siente más fresco y tenso, pero siempre con su estilo casi lujurioso de madurez. Puede que esa tensión se deba a que la mitad el carménère viene de parras jóvenes de 2005 en la ladera empinada de un cerro. Esas uvas maduran antes que las más viejas de los planos y le dan un equilibrio distinto al vino, ofrecen por cierto alcohol, pero uvas que maduran más rápido mantienen mayor acidez y eso se siente aquí. Sin embargo, y más allá de esas teorías "conspirativas" Clos sigue siendo Clos, un vino generoso, que llena la boca. En ese estilo, es aún el mejor que se produce en Chile."

yr. 2015 Patricio Tapia - Descorchados:

94 of 100 Points.

"Patricio Tapia - Descorchados" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2015 on 01.01.2021 with 94 of 100 points.

"Además de ser una mezcla de cepas (46% carménère, 30% cabernet, 19% merlot y 5% franc), Clos Apalta es también una mezcla de viñedos, algunos de ellos muy antiguos (especialmente en carménère y cabernet) que datan de 1920 y que son la base histórica de este vino, que se produce de los viñedos de Apalta desde que debutara con su cosecha de 1997. Y aunque ya no es el monstruo de madurez y de madera que era en un comienzo, hoy sigue siendo un vino voluptuoso, de carácter envolvente, suculento, llenando cada rincón del paladar con sus tonos especiados y a frutas negras maduras."

yr. 2010 Falstaff:

92 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2010 on 01.02.2017 with 92 of 100 points.

"Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarter Wasserrand. Zart ätherisch unterlegte schwarze Beerenfrucht, Nuancen von Lakritze und Schokolade, Kräuternote. Saftig, angenehme Extraktsüße, präsente, etwas fordernde Tannine, besitzt einen frischen Säurebogen, bleibt gut haften, leicht austrocknend im Nachhall, verfügt über Reifepotenzial."

yr. 2009 Falstaff:

94 of 100 Points.

"Falstaff" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2009 on 01.10.2012 with 94 of 100 points.

"Dunkles Rubingranat, fester Kern,"

yr. 2007 Tom Cannavan:

94 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2007 on 01.01.2010 with 94 of 100 points.

"(2010) 61% Carmenère, 24% Cabernet, 12% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. 24 months in oak. Lots of tight, creamy, pure blackcurrant fruit. There is some meatiness here, with a muscularity to the wine, but the fruit has a silky depth. On the palate plenty of ripe, sweet, quite juicy and deep blackcurrant. The palate weight is good, and the balance here of tannins and excellent acidity. This is a wine with really good length and structure. It seems much less full-on than some earlier vintages, and that is a good thing."

yr. 1997 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 1997 on 01.01.2000 with 91 of 100 points.

"(2000) Medium/deep even purple/black. Very youthful. This has a fairly restrained style on the nose, not obviously over-ripe and forward as most Australian Cabernets. On the palate too it seems un-Australian, with a dominating influence of grippy, savoury tannins. This and quite high acidity are overpowering fruit at present, but there is bitter cherry, plum, leather and spice there too and it has pretty good structure and length. Quite classy."

yr. 2018 Patricio Tapia - Descorchados:

94 of 100 Points.

"Patricio Tapia - Descorchados" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2018 on 01.01.2022 with 94 of 100 points.

"Clos Apalta es el clásico vino de Apalta y se basa en carménère, con un 64%, más un 18% de cabernet sauvignon y un 18% de merlot, todo de viñedos propios en el Valle de Apalta. Como es habitual, este vino es un pequeño monstruo de madurez y alcohol -este año se empina por los 15 grados-, mientras que los sabores son envolventes y extra maduros en un estilo que, a la vista de esta versión, no parece haber cambiado mucho desde que hizo su debut gracias a la cosecha de 1997. Con 25 meses de crianza en barricas (87% de roble nuevo), los aromas tostados también juegan un papel importante en la musculatura y en los sabores de Clos, un tinto para guardar."

yr. 2010 Vinum Wine Magazine:

17 of 20 Points.

"Vinum Wine Magazine" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2010 on 01.10.2013 with 17 of 20 points.

"Verschwenderische Fruchtfülle mit süssen dunklen Beeren, Zimt, Tabak und ausgeprägten Würznoten. Am Gaumen voll und weich, mit süsslichem Fruchtextrakt. Typischer Blockbuster der neuen Schule, dem es dank der saftigen Säure nicht an Frische fehlt."

yr. 2007 Wine Enthusiast:

93 of 100 Points.

"Wine Enthusiast" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2007 on 01.01.2010 with 93 of 100 points.

"Outstanding as always. Right from the first take it has an elevated sense of being. The nose is rich, warm and deeply fruited, with balsam wood and lemony notes. It's deep as a coal mine on the palate, with herbal, tobacco and leather accents sprucing up serious berry fruit flavors. Minty and sly on the finish, and lovely overall. Drink now through 2016."

yr. 2005 Wine Enthusiast:

94 of 100 Points.

"Wine Enthusiast" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2005 on 01.01.2008 with 94 of 100 points.

"Clos Apalta continues to push the envelope for Chilean icon wines. It's always been a blend of four or five Bordeaux grapes, and the 2005 is every bit as structured, tight and ripe as any predecessor. There is an intense blanket of new oak that tastes of mint, cinnamon, sawdust and black licorice. When that subsides (maybe in another 12 months), expect racy and complex berry flavors, pinpoint tannins and preserving acidity. Hold for another two years; then drink through 2014."

yr. 2004 Wine Enthusiast:

91 of 100 Points.

"Wine Enthusiast" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2004 on 01.01.2007 with 91 of 100 points.

"Attractive mint and spice aromas play with herbal black fruit on the firm bouquet, and after that there's plenty of blackberry and plum to propel the palate. As always, this is a premier Chilean red blend that grafts pure power to elegance. It may not have the potency and density of fruit of the 2003, but it isn't lacking."

yr. 2003 Wine Enthusiast:

94 of 100 Points.

"Wine Enthusiast" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2003 on 01.01.2006 with 94 of 100 points.

"Dense as a brick, with deep blackberry, prune, earth and chocolate aromas. Huge and multilayered, but already exhibiting perfect structure and integrated oak and spice flavors. Pure and exact; along with the 2001 this is Clos Apalta at its finest. Imported by Moët Hennessy USA."

yr. 2002 Wine Enthusiast:

92 of 100 Points.

"Wine Enthusiast" has rated the wine "Clos Apalta" from the vintage 2002 on 01.01.2005 with 92 of 100 points.

"Saturated and rich, with meaty, forceful aromas of black fruit, molasses and toasted marshmallow. A blend of Carmenère, Cabernet and Merlot that's full of cassis, black cherry and a light herbaceousness. Lush but structured; a real big boy."
