Lapostolle Le Petit Clos Red Blend 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  539791

The 2014 'Le Petit Clos' is a simply fascinating wine composed of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carmenére, 28% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot which spent 18 months in new 225L French oak for 8 months, followed by an additional 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels and vats. While its name suggests this may be something 'petit', that couldn't be further from the case for this majestic red, as it bursts opens with profound aromas of blackberries and dark currants woven together with spices, cedar, spring floral, chocolate, roasted coffee and hints of loamy notes. This palate is remarkably dense and concentrated, with plush layers of ripe dark fruits, spices and cedar notes building on the long multidimensional finish. A simply incredible wine, which is simply delicious now, yet possesses the potential to thrive in the cellar for many years. (Best 2017-2029). Score - 94. (Joe D'Angelo,, Sept. 2017)
