Clos de l’Oratoire 2015

Clos de l'Oratoire

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 95.0

One of many excellent châteaux in the Neipperg stable (Château Canon La Gaffeliere, La Mondotte etc), Clos de L’Oratoire is an acclaimed Saint- Émilion estate that has continued to create distinctive wines. Its 13-hectare vineyard is planted with Merlot (c.80%) and Cabernet Franc (c.20%) and benefits from two unique terroirs: clay, limestone and Fronsac molasse on the hillsides, and clayey-sand on the bottom of the slopes. This Merlot dominant vineyard benefits from the slightly cooler microclimate of Saint- Émilion. Like all the other estates in Neipperg’s portfolio, Oratoire practices sustainable and biodynamic viticulture; avoiding herbicides, pesticides or insecticides. The final blend is aged in 80% new French oak barrels for 14-18 months. The end result is a rounded, opulent wine, that is full of powerful fruit aromas.

The 2015 Clos de l’Oratoire is deep garnet in color. It skips out of the glass with bright, cheery notes of kirsch, blackberry preserves, and spicy black cherries, plus wafts of underbrush, clove oil, and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is generous and chewy, with a lively line and a long earthy finish.

I loved the 2015 Clos De LOratoire and this beautiful Saint-Emilion comes from the northwest sector of the appellation and a mix of limestone and sandy soils. Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new oak, it has an incredible floral streak as well as perfumed notes of spring flowers, black raspberries, charcoal, and a salty minerality that shows more on the palate. With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, background chocolaty oak, and a terrific elegance, this beautiful 2015 is already impossible to resist yet I suspect will last for two decades or more. It’s impressive.
