Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos de L'Oratoire des Papes, Ogier

An iconic wine, made from mainly Grenache with Syrah 8%, Mourvèdre 7% and Cinsault 5% from a single vineyard site that has three classic soil types in it. The grapes are treated differently according to the variety and soil type. The nose is spicy with surprising floral notes of grass and acacia, evolving onto more classic notes of red berries; menthol brings a beautiful freshness. The attack is ample, with fine tannins and silky length finishing with scents of the ‘garrigues’.
