Clos Apalta, Le Petit Clos 2018

Clos Apalta, Le Petit Clos 2018

The blend sees more than half Carmenere, and the character of that variety dominates the palate with its acidity, white pepper freshness and raspberry leaf fragrance. Chewy tannins and a long finish show the structure in this second wine made from the youngest vines of the estate. 2018 is a great vintage in Chile and even with the trace of heat on the finish, this is an enjoyable easy drinker from Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle.
