Cuvee Alexandre Merlot - 2014 - Lapostolle

yr. 1999 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 1999 on 01.01.1970 with 91 of 100 points.

"Poured from magnum. Probably had much more oak, and more new oak than the 2007 cuvee. Lovely creamy, bold black fruit, with a certain density and sense of plush sweetness. The palate has maybe just lost a little bit of the mid-palate fruit depth and plushness it once had, but spicy and chocolaty tannins are fine and ripe, and this has terrific length still with the fruit lasting through."

yr. 2007 Tom Cannavan:

90 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 2007 on 01.01.1970 with 90 of 100 points.

"With 15% Carmenère. Savoury, chestnutty, quite spicy too, and the plushness of thick black fruit comes through. There's a touch of briar and sweet damp earth. Delicious palate, with a savoury edge to the black fruit on the palate. Plenty of grippy tannin here, quite a sinewy, muscular character. Plenty of power and concentration."

yr. 2002 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 2002 on 01.01.1970 with 92 of 100 points.

"This has a very deep, vibrant purple/black colour. The nose has a similar purity of fruit to the Cabernet Sauvignon, but with an extra perfume giving floral, rose-hip nuances to juicy red plum and ripe cherry fruit. There is a layering of dark, chocolaty, almost tobacco-like sweet oak. Once again this is a real mouthful of a wine, with a searingly dry structure of polished but incisive tannins, and a welter weight of juicy cherry acidity. The fruit is ample, with lots of bursting red berries, but this is less opulent and to me seems more tightly structured than previous vintages. That background of sweet vanillin oak adds breadth to the finish, in is another wine that will benefit from some time in the cellar to lose some of its tightness and grip."

yr. 2000 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 2000 on 01.01.1970 with 91 of 100 points.

"Some say this is Bordeaux super-oenologist Michel Roland's best wine, and it is certainly a personal favourite of mine. With its deep, inky, vivid purple colour and soaringly aromatic nose exuding delicious aromas of mocha-coffee and chocolate, cherries, exotic spices and velvety, tobacco, woodsmoke and black pepper. On the palate the luxurious character is emphasised, with layers of creamy black fruit (blackcurrant and plum) and a core of melting, brooding flavours: more cigar and cedar, bittersweet chocolate and spice. There is plenty of structure to this wine though, with polished tannins and good acidity helping extend the smooth, unruffled finish. Truly plush and hedonistic merlot of great character and style."

yr. 1998 Tom Cannavan:

92 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 1998 on 01.01.1970 with 92 of 100 points.

"A perennial favourite, this is loaded with cream, berries, tobacco and smoke. Firm tannins back up chunky, almost minty sweet fruit on the palate which is very thick and chocolaty. Tannins do support well into a long finish."

yr. 1996 Tom Cannavan:

91 of 100 Points.

"Tom Cannavan" has rated the wine "Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot, Apalta, Chile" from the vintage 1996 on 01.01.1970 with 91 of 100 points.

"Riper in style, much more brightness and roundness about the nose with raspberry and creamy blackcurrant. On the palate this is as lush and sweetly fruited as the Pomerol is structured and reserved. This wine displays its wares brashly, but is quite lovely in the richness and depth of fruit, backed up by ripe tannins. Low acidity, but a good finish. Although strikingly different from the Pomerol, and half the price, each is excellent in its own way."
