Superb color, dark garnet red, deep and intense.


Spicy and subtle nose; great elegance and aromatic complexity with notes of ripe fruit (blueberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, blackberry…), opening on toasted and fine woody notes.


Frank and soft attack with savory, silky and well-integrated tannins. Full, round and fleshy palate ending with a magnificent aromatic persistence full of finesse.

Robert Parker: Powerful character of the vintage
93 + The second wine, in the Bordeaux sense, the 2017 Le Petit Clos has a different blend from the grand vin, in this case 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere, 9% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot and is quite different every year. It fermented in 7,500-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts and a four- to five-week maceration followed by malolactic in new barriques. It matured in new French barriques for six months and spent the next 16 months in first, second and third use French oak barrels. I found a lot less influence from the oak here than in the
James Suckling: This is so delicious
This is so delicious with blackcurrants, spice, sweet tobacco, lavender and roses. Full-bodied, tight and very polished with gorgeous texture and finesse. Shows tannin tension at the end. A blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon, the rest cabernet franc. Better after 2022.


Delicately, the wine swirls in the glass; its shimmering cherry dress billows gracefully against the fine crystal. All you have to do is smell it to appreciate it... strong aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and slightly spicy tobacco. A balanced texture with silky tannins, it rolls around the tongue and nestles under it for a few seconds, leaving a sweet and fragrant memory. You have experienced its intimacy and true personality.

 Clos Apalta image


We listened to the silence. We listened to the vines. We marveled at the spellbinding sunset in the evening, when the shadows gently dance and the trees are hushed to a whisper...it feels like a different world.Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, Founder

It is rare for a place to be able to captivate a person so immediately, with so much force. It was 1994. After months of research, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband, Cyril de Bournet, discovered the Apalta Valley. A fine, golden light embraced the vineyard whilst hundred-year old-vines stood, intertwining majestically. Harmony had taken residence here. Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle knew that Clos Apalta could bring about the joyful encapsulation of this breathtaking landscape.

Jacques Begarie, Clos Apalta Technical Director since 2004, also describes the subtle beauties of the location, Clos Apalta wakes up and then radiates. An alchemy of lights, of smells – aromas of wild thyme and rosemary – of shrubby vegetation and rows of olive trees. In the distance, the Andes mountain range stands, breathtaking with its constantly snowy caps. In the autumn it is an equally captivating scene, with the vineyard offering an infinite palette of colours; from the yellow merlots to the carmine of the Carménère grapes. The blue of the sky returns and the dust vanishes, washed away by the rains. Over the tip of the mountain, the sun approaches. In the sky, high above us, condors swoop and dive whilst some foxes stand guard. Later on, the star-studded, indigo Milky Way fills the sky over the cellar.
