Ripe black fruits and a full-bodied texture give this ready-to-drink wine immediacy. Lightly spiced, balancing blackberry fruits and acidity, the wine is delicious now.

Coming from the team at Château La Gaffelière, the 2018 Chapelle D'Alienor By La Gaffelière is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc sourced from the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux. Black raspberries, cherries, tobacco, and vanilla notes all emerge from the glass, and this plump, fruit-forward, fruit bomb styled red offers a lot of pleasure, yet it's geared for near-term drinking.

The 2018 Chapelle d'Aliénor, a Bordeaux Supérieur from La Gaffelière, has a ripe and candied bouquet with vanillary red and blue fruit, a touch of patisserie in the background. The palate is very sweet and slightly confectionary on the entry, plush in texture with what feels like a bit of residual sugar on the finish. Easy-drinking and possibly a little cloying in quantity?
