Winemaker Notes

Clos de l’Oratoire is round, smooth, and very seductive. It has a beautiful deep crimson color and powerful fruity aromas. Merlot provides roundness and opulence, whereas Cabernet Franc contributes power, aromatic complexity, and a long aftertaste. Although Clos de l’Oratoire can be enjoyed seven years after the vintage, it is, above all, a wine with fine ageing potential.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous
The 2021 Clos de l'Oratoire is terrific. It offers a striking mix of dark blue/purplish fruit, chocolate, lavender, spice, menthol and crushed rocks. Dynamic and vibrant in the glass, impresses for its finely cut, somewhat nervous personality. The 2021 represents a pretty big stylistic shift. Some of that is the vintage and some is an evolution in style. The combined effects of those two factors make for a compelling Clos de L'Oratoire. –Antonio Galloni

James Suckling

This is tight and fine-tannined with a medium body, lightly rounded tannins and a fresh and bright finish. Structured and long. Polished. Barrel Sample: 92-93

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
A charming, character loaded 2021 with lots to like, the 2021 Clos De L'Oratoire should be outstanding. Spice, sandalwood, tobacco, and ripe red and black cherry fruits give way to a medium-bodied, balanced, elegant wine. It showed beautifully on numerous occasions.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Exhibiting notions of cherries, blackberries and licorice, the 2021 Clos de l'Oratoire is medium to full-bodied, broad and enveloping, with a textural attack, bright acids and a fleshy core of fruit, framed by fine tannins that gently assert themselves on the finish. It's one of the more gourmand, generous wines in the von Neipperg range.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 92
Decanter
Nice floral fragrance on the nose, smooth and supple, the tannins have a soft bounce to them here matched with purity of juicy, lively red berry flavors and a delicious salinity on the palate. I like the combination, feels well worked with the detail on show. It's lightly framed in terms of texture but has depth of flavor. I love the transparency where you get crunch, crispness and saltiness. A pristine quality to this.

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.
