Clos de l'Oratoire Grande Cru Classe Saint-Emilion 2016

"This comes highly recommended." - 91-93pts Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

£44.95

Clos de l’Oratoire is round, smooth, and very seductive. It has a beautiful deep crimson colour and powerful fruity aromas. Merlot provides roundness and opulence, whereas the addition of 10% Cabernet Franc contributes power, aromatic complexity, and a long finish.

Clos de l’Oratoire, located on Saint-Emilion's northeast slope, has 13 hectares of vines. The terroir of Fronsac molasse, consisting of a layer of sandy soil and a clay subsoil, is ideally suited to Merlot (80% of the vines).

Meticulous work is done all year long to maintain quality in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place exclusively in temperature-controlled oak vats. Oak, a noble material in perfect synergy with fine wine, enhances its colour and flavour, and enables it to reach its full potential.

"Pure and unadorned, with a lovely bean of cassis and cherry compote stretching out, flecked with subtle anise, singed alder and mireal accents" 92-95pts
