Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, France
Château la Chapelle 2020 Saint-Émilion, this organic Château La Chapelle has all the finesse and elegance of a great Saint-Emilion!
Béatrice Larribière, who was taught from an early age by her grandfather Gaston to work in a way that respects people and the environment, obtained organic farming certification for the 2012 vintage. We immediately like the pretty dark ruby colour of Chateau La Chapelle, and its bouquet of ripe, slightly jammy red fruit. After a nice sweetness on the attack, the palate is fruity, balanced and smooth. Chateau La Chapelle is a dense wine with a long finish and good aromatic persistence.
“On the nose, we find spicy notes evolving towards aromas of undergrowth and blackberries On the palate, the wine is round and fruity, with powerful and ripe tannins and an elegant and long finish.” 91 pts – James Suckling
“A fruity pure Merlot wine that has spice and tannins as well as juicy black fruits. Smoky with a jammy character that still allows room for acidity, the wine is likely to be ready to drink from 2025. Organic.” 91 pts – Wine Enthusiast
