750ML / 14.1% ABV

Winemaker Notes

Blend: 81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc

The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.

*Please note that the Wine.com price of this Bordeaux Future does not include any tariffs. As of today, there remains a 25% tariff imposed on French wines by the U.S. and approved by the World Trade Organization related to the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute. We are hopeful that this tariff will be removed in advance of the wine being released to be imported into the U.S., as Bordeaux Futures typically ship 2-years after they are offered. Should any tariff still be in effect when the wine is ready to be imported, we will contact affected customers via email with an update to our plans and timing.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling

Chewy and rich with dried-mushroom, dark-fruit and burnt-orange character. It’s full-bodied with a dense, tannic palate. Smoky, toasty and coffee undertones here, too.
Barrel Sample: 94-95

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos de l'Oratoire comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of stewed cherries, mulberries and black raspberries plus suggestions of powdered cinnamon, potpourri, tobacco leaf and wild sage. The generously fruited, medium to full-bodied palate is laden with juicy black fruit and spicy accents, framed by soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long with an invigorating lift.
Barrel Sample:92-94
V 94
Vinous
A muscular, powerful wine, Clos de l'Oratoire is deep and expressive from the very first taste. Inky dark fruit, lavender, espresso, gravel and new leather all build as this potent Saint-Émilion shows off its character. Even with all of its fruit intensity, Clos de l'Oratoire has plenty of tannic heft.
Barrel Sample:92-94
JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
Another beautiful wine from the Neipperg family, the 2019 Clos De L'Oratoire has a bright purple color as well as great aromatics of cassis and blueberry fruits along with spring flowers, candied orange, and spice. With medium to full-bodied richness, a tight, compact mouthfeel, good concentration, and terrific length, it's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for two decades.
Barrel Sample:92-94
D 93
Decanter
Sweetened and silky berry fruits, lovely combination of juice and tension alongside firm tannins and a confident overall feel. Impressive stuff from Neipperg at this rather under-the-radar classified estate.
Barrel Sample: 93

Clos de l'Oratoire

Clos de l'Oratoire, France

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.

Every vat is handled according to its specific profile. Fermentation temperatures are kept relatively low and pigeage (punching down the cap) is done very slowly.
