Discover Cabernet Sauvignon Wines
Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine grape variety from the vitis vinifera grape plant species. It is the world's most commonly planted red wine grape variety, and its wines have lately been rated as the most sought-after in the world. When vinified properly, it may produce a full-bodied, complex, fruit-forward, and dry wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape owes most of its fame to its origins in the Bordeaux area of France. Traditionally, these wines have a strong crimson and black fruit flavor with a pronounced tannic component.
Because of its flavor profile and simplicity of production, Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular grape type among wine consumers and vintners both. The vines are very resilient, adapting to a wide range of temperatures and terroirs. They grow grapes with thick skins that are resistant to harsh conditions such as frost and hail.
Cabernet Sauvignon has large yields, which is a major plus for winemakers since it is one of the most popular red wines in the world.
About the Producer: Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle
Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle (DBL) is a dynamic and influential winemaker in Chile. In 1827, the Lapostolle family started making exquisite wine and spirits in France. Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle, a sixth-generation family member, and her husband Cyril de Bournet were among the first to recognize the Apalta Valley's terroirs in Chile as having the potential to produce high-quality red varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, and Merlot in 1994. Clos Apalta, DBL's iconic wine, made history in 2005 by being the first and only South American wine to ever be named #1 in Wine Spectator's prestigious Top100. Alexandra and Cyril were joined in their mission by their son, Charles de Bournet, to develop world-class wines combining French winemaking methodology and Apalta's excellent terroirs. Charles has spent a lot of time in Apalta promoting Syrah and Rose varietals like Cinsault and Grenache, as well as terroir studies and sustainable techniques. Michel Rolland, a world-renowned winemaker, has been a consultant at DBL since the outset, working with Charles to create wines that reflect the family's tastes as well as the unique terroirs of Apalta.
