Vinification
Full de-stemming, crushing and cold pre-fermentation maceration for the Grenaches grown in safer soils, the Cinsaults and the Syrahs, followed by fermentation at consistent temperatures of 26/27°C. For the other wines the temperatures are kept below 30°C with 2 to 3 rack and returns during the alcoholic fermentation followed by gentle pumping over and cap punching during maceration.
Ageing
16 months in French oak casks followed by 4 months in concrete vat.
Tasting notes
The robe is frank with blue-toned colours. The nose unveils burlat cherry and fig aromas with spices such as nutmeg, with cocoa and morello cherry eau de vie notes. The palate carries silky tannins. A freshness in the mouth, combined with complex red fruits, gentle spices and smoky notes.
Food and wine pairing
The Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes red 2012 pairs to perfection with a slow roasted leg of lamb with Provencal herbs, a roast chicken or even a dish of quail cooked in a white wine, grape and juniper berry sauce.
Service advice
Between 15 and 16°C. This wine will flourish as soon as the bottle is opened and will continue to evolve slowly in the glass to reveal the finest of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroirs.
Cellaring potential
This wine has been gradually opening up to us since 2019 and will continue to evolve beautifully through until 2022-2023 at least.
