verview of the Wine
Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle (DBL) is one of Chile’s most dynamic and influential winemakers. The Lapostolle family began producing fine wine and spirits in France in 1827. In 1994, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, sixth generation family member, and her husband Cyril de Bournet, were one of the first to see the potential of Apalta Valley’s terroirs in Chile for producing high quality red varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot. In 2005, DBL’s icon wine Clos Apalta made history by becoming the first and only South American wine to date to ever be ranked #1 of the famous Top100 of Wine Spectator. Alexandra and Cyril were joined by their son, Charles de Bournet, in their simple as ambitious goal: to create world-class wines using French winemaking philosophy and the superb terroirs of Apalta. Charles has done extensive work in introducing Syrah and Rose varietals, such as Cinsault and Grenache, terroirs analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Apalta. World renowned winemaker, Michel Rolland, has been consulting at DBL since the beginning and works with Charles to produce wines that express the family’s taste and the unique terroirs of Apalta.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A beautiful and intense ruby red color. The nose is elegant and complex. It opens towards the intense fruit with herbs and spices, with an elegant and well integrated oak finish. Classic structure, with elegant and long tannins, with more flavors of fruits and black spices. Prolonged finish, and velvety.

99 Points - James Suckling
This has a polished nose of black olives, oyster shells, thyme, salted chocolate, graphite, black fruit and cassis. Some orange zest, too. It’s so well structured, with firm, tight and chewy tannins and bright acidity. Full body. Yet elegant, too. Long. 100% cabernet sauvignon from 100 year old ungrafted vines. Drink or hold.
