91 points, The Wine Advocate

A noteworthy second wine to the iconic Clos Apalta, this has all of the class and polish, although it is slightly more approachable in its youth. Ripe and concentrated, with intense cassis and blackcurrant flavours, giving way to roasted coffee and spice notes. The tannins are plush and mouthfilling, but the finish is fresh, giving elegance and finesse.

Le Petit Clos is a different interpretation of the Clos Apalta Terroir, using the mastery of blending that is the heart of the winemaking philosophy from the Domaines Bournet - Lapostolle.

Apalta is located at 170 Kilometers South West from Santiago in the Colchagua Valley. The Vineyard is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite rare in Chile. This geography is responsible for the conditions that ensure balance for our vines and a slow ripening for the grapes.

Our Petit Clos was hand harvested in small cases of 14 kilos. The grapes are then hand de-stemmed in our Clos Apalta Winery so we maintain complete control of the quality. We fill our fermentation French oak vats by gravity. We use native yeast to ferment the grape juice into wine, with temperature control max. 28° C. We estate bottled the wine by gravity without any treatment or filtration.
