Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations.
This expressive wine shows the complex side of the Carmenere grape. The juicy red fruit is complemented by spice and oak that is coming from the 10 months in French oak barrels of different ages. This wine would pair well with a steak or duck breast.
