Winemakers Note

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. Key Points - Family owned and managed - A high quality and well rate wine - Small production - Certified Organic Farming since 2020 Area under vine 13.07 ha Terroir Clay-limestone with Fronsac molasse on top of the slope and clay-sand soil at the foot of the slope Average age of the vines 35 years Certification Organic Farming certified since 2020 Harvesting By hand, into small crates to avoid bruising.
