Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2001
Deep and intense black purple color. Explosive nose of red fruits, blackberries, black cherry and raspberry, mixed with complex notes of toasted vanilla, cedar, black chocolate and coffee. In mouth, the wine is only density, volume, concentration and fullness. The present and round tannins give the wine a solid and well-structured character. The finish is long, velvety and silky.
Stunning purity, with concentrated plum, boysenberry and raspberry fruit that just glides across the palate, buttressed by superfine yet muscular tannins. Suave toast, coconut butter and spice notes along with alluring chocolate and black tea hints chime in on the long finish. A superb combination of fruit and elegance.
