Lapostolle the iconic winery makes all its wines based on a French style. On their back label they also state: "...Lapostolle Wines are French in essence..." (NB: you can also read this as we take 360-degree photos of all the bottles which you can zoom in if you like).

The Marnier-Lapostolle family, founder and owner of the world-renowned liqueur, Grand Marnier, has also been making beautiful wines for generations. The icon wine is Clos Apalta, perhaps the best wine in South America

The 'French' Chileans of Lapostolle also make a beautiful and unique Chardonnay in Casablanca, the cooler area of the arts. They also use a Semillon in this wine and this combination creates a French-like chardonnay. The hand-picked grapes are delivered cooled, sorted using 'vistalys' technique and pressed directly. No malolactic fermentation to keep the wine fresh and the aging takes place at 100% in a stainless steel tank. The wines are produced according to bio-dynamic methods and have been made certified Carbon-neutral (Co2-neutral).

In the glass, the Grand Selection Chardonnay has a clear light yellow color. In the attractive nose expressive aromas of tropical fruits, such as pineapple and papaya, in addition to sweet floral notes. From the beginning to the end you can taste the beautiful acidity, elegance, round structure and concentration. Long harmonious finish. Due to the cool climate there is an excellent balance between the fruit and the acids, which makes this chardonnay very pleasant.
