Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2012

These soils have a granite origin with low fertility and are slightly acid. Like their mother rock, they are very sensitive to erosion and need to be protected by a green cover management.

The story


Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay 2012
As a general winemaking philosophy, in our Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay we look for elegance, balance and ageing potential. In 2012, we did 75% of whole cluster pressing and 25% of maceration into the press before fermenting. 83% was fermented in French barrels and 17% in stainless steel tanks. Our Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay was 100% aged in French oak barrels for 11 months (76% in new French oak barrels and 24% second use barrels). The result is a well-integrated oak with elegant structure to enhance the natural acidity and freshness of this grape. No malolactic fermentation was pursued.
