Lapostolle Le Rouge

The red blend of Lapostolle Le Rouge enhances the French winemaking and blending expertise and the Chilean terroir at its best: from the Carmenère it gets its roundness and spicy expression; from Merlot, its red fruit and acidity; from Cabernet Sauvignon, its complexity and elegant structure; and from Syrah, its exuberant and attractive aromas and finally a touch of Cabernet Franc to complete the blend with its floral expression.

“From selected blocks of our vineyards, it shows the elegance and balance that inspire our French winemaking heritage”.
Jacques Begarie, Chief Winemaker.

Certified Carbon Neutral.
