Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2015

Lapostolle's Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay is sourced from the estate's own vineyards located in the cool coastal region of Casablanca. All grapes are hand harvested and once at the winery directly whole bunch pressed and the juice naturally decanted into stainless steel tanks at low temperature. For the 2015 vintage, 82% of the juice was fermented in French oak barrels and 18% was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The final Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay was then aged 100% in French oak barrels for 11 months (49% in new French oak barrel and 51% second and third use French oak barrel). The result is a wine with well integrated oak and elegant structure to enhance the natural acidity and freshness. No malolactic fermentation was done.

Bright yellow in colour the nose displays floral aromas, sweet spices, honey, apricot, vanilla and delicate notes of fresh fruit such as papaya and quince. The palate is intense and elegant, with high volume in the mouth, fresh acidity and a vibrant finish.

Lapostolle - Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2015 - Wine Spectator

“Pure-tasting, with lithe minerality and spiciness to the mouthwatering flavors of quince, ripe pear, apple and dried peach. Ginger and spice on the plush finish.” -- 03/31/2018
