Default Cuvee

Looking for the word "cuvee" as I bought a bottle of Casa Lapostolle, 2006
Apalta Vineyard, Merlot, Colchauga Valley, with written handwriting on label
"Cuvee Alexandre."

I found that "cuvee" actually has many definitions, so it is a mystery as
how it might apply to this particular wine of
who live in Switzerland and have their roots in France, as I read the

As note in the below link, you might stay at the "Residence" in Chile
"Casa Lapostolle, the family-owned producer of premium Chilean wine,
celebrate the opening of its striking state-of-the-art gravity-fed Winery &
Lapostolle Residence, dedicated solely to the production of its flagship
wine Clos Apalta"

I think now is a good time to study my copy of "Mondo Vino" to refresh
myself on what a small world this is.

Enjoying the Lapostolle. Costco $17.99 U.S.
