Le Rouge 2014

Nice blend. Very dry, almost saline in the aftertaste. Not much on fruit more wood and vanilla on the nose and palate.

Interested to see how it changes after some time in the air.

Grand Selection Carménère 2015

Wine is young bit already impressive. I would wait a few more years, but if you are anxious like me, you won’t be deceived. Carmenere at its best, round and rich in tanins with a kittle berry aftertaste.

Le Petit Clos Apalta Red Blend 2015

Ming L
9.2

Beautiful second wine of Clos Apalta. The nose is expressive yet delicate, with cassis, blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, incense, touch of herbal spices, and hint of dry lavender. The full body is finely tuned like a long distance runner without any bulkiness. Soft and expansive palate, with polished tannins.
For 2015 it contains an unusually high 47% Carmenere. 6 months in 225 lt new French oak barrel, and another 17 months in French oak barrels, 22% new.
Nothing petit about this wine!

Massal 1945 Family Vineyards

Clos de Luz Carmenere 2016

9.0

A welcoming nose of ripe black fruits such as cassis and plum, dark chocolate, black tea leafs, and bell pepper. The palate is warm and deep, and velvety, with a taste echoing the nose. Polished tannins and long sweet finish. The bell pepper note might be a turn off for some, but I like it a lot here.
From vines dating back to 1945 that are genetically different (hence massal selection, as opposed to a single clone). Casa Lapostolle used to buy the grapes for the Clos Apalta bottling.

Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Lush ripe blackberries and currant with toasty oak and hints of mint and espresso. Firm tannins give ample support and there’s a lovely velvety finish. Terrific; will please newbies and oenophiles alike. Grabbed it for $16 from my new favorite wine place. I know right?? Stock up and tank me later. — 3 years ago
