Made with organic grapes, quite aromatic with smooth and pleasing butter, apple and pear. Creamy and oily on the medium-full bodied frame, and lovely aroma replays. Balanced, long finish. Good acidity for pairing with food. Very nice! Tasted June/2013.

Light gold in colour with medium+ intense nose.
A nice balance between oak, fruit and minerality.
Positives: Light to medium toasted oak featuring lemon drops, pears, peach, buttered popcorn, a touch of honey and limestone. Full body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Drink now on its own or cellar it for another 5 years. Pair it with roasted turkey.

Named after the creator of Grand Marnier, Cuvee Alexander is a lovely gold colour and has lots of oak, with buttered popcorn, honey and creamed corn on the nose, as well as tropical fruit and pear. I’m not a huge fan of oaky Chardonnay, but I liked this. There was tropical fruit on the palate and a good, round mouth feel.

The Casa Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2011 was made with organically and biodynamically grown grapes from the Atalayas vineyard that subsequently were fermented and aged in French Oak for 8 months. It has captivating aromas of pear, light minerality, butter and subtle oak as well as light hint of roasted coffee beans. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine with checked acidity, soft tannins and a long, slightly hot finish. Food friendly or a stand-alone sipper; drink now - 2018+ (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts - well crafted wine for fans of Chardonnays lightly imparted by oak and reasonably priced. Tasted privately with Charles de Bournet Marnier Lapostolle in June/13.
