Appellation: Saint-Émilion

95- James Suckling

"Aromas of bark, blackberries, currants and basil leaf, not to mention lavender and sage.  Full body, integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish.  Layered and beautiful." (02/2018)

95- Jeb Dunnuck

"I loved the 2015 Clos De L'Oratoire and this beautiful Saint-Emilion comes from the northewest sector of the appellation and a mix of limestone and sandy soils.  Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new oak, it has an incredible floral streak as well as perfumed notes of spring flowers, black raspberries, charcoal and a salty mineralogy that shows more on the palate.  With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, background chocolaty oak, and a terrific elegance, this beautiful 2015 is already impossible to resist yet I suspect will last for two decades or more.  Its Impressive 94+" (11/2017)

94- Wine Spectator

"Crushed plum, cassis and melted red licorice notes are seamlessly intertwined here, with bright chalky mineralogy and a lovely floral lift thoughtout.  Richly layered and youthfully compact but with excellent cut and drive through the finish.  Best from 2023-2035. (JM)" (03/2018)
