Critic Reviews
88-90 points, Jeb Dunnuck
“Coming from the sprawling Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux, the 2018 Château Chapelle d’Aliénor is made by the team at La Gaffelière and is a tank-aged blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. This ripe, sexy, flamboyant 2018 reveals a deep purple color as well as classic notes of black cherries, tobacco, forest floor, and earth. Showing a floral edge with time in the glass, it’s medium-bodied, upfront, and ready to go.”

“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. Roger Voss.”

About The Winery
Having settled in Saint-Émilion in 1705, the Malet Roquefort family of Domaines Comte de Malet Roquefort has a history in Bordeaux spanning more than three centuries. A record of vines being planted on this land in Gallo-Roman times shows an even longer history of viticulture, and was confirmed in 1969 by Comte Léo de Malet Roquefort who discovered ruins of the Gallo-Roman Villa du Palat with mosaics depicting vines plantings. Château La Gaffelière, which gained status in 1954 as a Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, is the original estate of the Malet Roquefort family. In 2001, the family united three estates, Château La Gaffelière, Château Chapelle d'Aliénor, and Château Armens, under a single brand: Domaines Comte de Malet Roquefort. Later, in 2008 Château La Connivence also joined the Domaines. Today, the Domaines Comte de Malet Roquefort estates include: Château La Gaffelière, Château Chapelle d'Aliénor, Château Armens, and Château La Connivence. Founded on the four guiding principles of excellence, elegance, authenticity, and independence, the Malet Roqueforts have passed on their traditions, generation after generation, and today Alexandre de Malet Roquefort is at the helm of Domaines Comte de Malet Roquefort. Like his ancestors, he shares a passion for wine and for the Saint-Émilion terroir which they call home.
