Un châteauneuf-du-pape particulièrement généreux. Ample, intensément fruité et long en bouche, c'est un vrai vin de gastronomie à garder en cave quelques années. More info
Châteauneuf-du-Pape Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Ogier serve at a temperature of 12°C.
The Clos de l'Oratoire devotes two parcels to this rare, delicate wine. Like the red wine, its label has not changed since 1926, when it was first produced by the Amouroux family. The wine is matured for 4 months on fine lees in new barrique barrels and stainless steel vats. It has a pretty straw colour with golden hints. The nose is expressive and opens into notes of pears, lychee and vanilla. The palate is indulgent, creamy and very fruity. This wine should be drunk after several years' keeping, when it will turn fish in sauce or pike quenelles into something truly special.
Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes was named in tribute to the Popes who chose this region for their summer residence. It was established in the 19th century and enjoyed a real boom from the start of the 1920s under the Amouroux family. In 2000, after a period of decline, the property was taken over by the Ogier group, also proprietors of Caves des Papes, and has recovered its prestige. Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes' most distinctive attribute is the exceptional diversity of its soils. The vines are planted on parcels comprised of limestone, safre and rolled pebbles mixed with red clay. The combination of an exceptional terroir and a perfect aspect for the vines (sun and the winds of the mistral) make for a powerful and very characteristic wine.
