Heiner Lobenberg über:
Clos Apalta 2019


Lobenberg: Eine fast extreme Intensität der Frucht, sehr dicht, intensiv und dabei samtig, die enorme Struktur der Tannine und des Holzes sorgen für die gute Balance auf Top-Niveau. Die Carmenere macht den Wein unikathaft. In seinem Konkurrenzbereich ist er fast preiswert. Moderner toller Stoff. 97-100/100


Suckling über: Clos Apalta

-- Suckling: A generous array of ripe black and blue fruit with pink peppercorns, green olives, dried flowers, toffee and chocolate orange. It’s full-bodied with firm, creamy and velvety tannins. Long and polished. Lovely salted caramel and olives at the end. Keeps going. Unfolds on the finish. 70% carmenere, 18% merlot, 8% cabernet sauvignon and 4% petit verdot. Drink or hold. 99/100


International Wine Report über: Clos Apalta

-- International Wine Report: The 2019 Clos Apalta is another brilliant release for this iconic wine. It begins with incredibally complex aromatics of ripe dark currants, cassis, sweet exotic spices, roasted coffee grounds, fresh florals, green pepper, graphite and hints of loam which all come together seamlessly in the glass. On the palate this is just as stunning as it continues to thoroughly impress with its full body and beautifully polished, yet supportive tannins along with a deep core of ripe dark/red fruit. It demonstrates remarkable depth and concentration as well as outstanding balance and finesse leading up to the long, voluptuous finish. This wine has it all, and while it is already quite fascinating in its youth it should evolve beautifully over the next decade. 98/100


Jane Anson über: Clos Apalta

-- Jane Anson: This is more sculpted and cerebral than the Petit Clos, so if you are looking for exuberance and punch, go for the 2nd wine, but this takes things up a level. Star bright blueberry and cassis fruits, raspberry leaf, white pepper cocoa bean and lemongrass and a ton of slate-scrape tannins. A brilliant wine from a warm and dry vintage, that they have successfully navigated. One of the highest proportions of Carménère to date, with 90% new oak for ageing, then one year in bottle before release. 97/100
