Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Les Chorégies du Clos de L'Oratoire des papes, Ogier

Only Grenache and Syrah grown on the Galets Roulés terraces on red clay in the vineyard are used to make Les Chorégies. The wine undergoes a long post-fermentation vatting; then ageing in a mixture, both in terms of size and age, of oak barrels for 14 months. Deep cherry-red colour with a delicate ruby tint; the nose is complex and offers up ripe red fruit, black pepper and vanilla. The palate is rich with weighty, yet elegant, tannins and a balancing freshness; sweetly ripe berry fruit mingles with spice and Provençal herbs.
