"Interesting aromas of dark fruit with orange-peel and apricot undertones. Medium-bodied, tight and focused. Round tannins and a delicious finish. Why wait?" (JS)

"The third wine from La Gaffelière, the 2015 Château Chapelle D'Alienor By La Gaffelière checks in as 74% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon. This opulent, sexy, front-end loaded beauty boasts a ruby/purple color, classic notes of strawberries, black cherries, spring flowers and vanilla bean, and textured, gulpable texture. It’s not going to make old bones but is an undeniable high-quality wine that offers pleasure. " (JD)

"Under the same ownership as Château la Gaffelière in Saint-Emilion, this estate has produced a sumptuously ripe wine. Its tannins are softened enough to integrate with the generous black fruits. Acidity keeps the wine in balance. Drink from 2020. Roger Voss" (WE)
