Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

clos de l'oratoire des papes wines for sale The story begins in 1880 when, following his marriage, Edouard Amouroux became the owner of the Clos de Oratoire, a fine Vineyard parcel of syrah vines. It was named after the oratory besides the parcel at Tresqouy.
The Vineyard becomes the Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes and gains a label design that has remained unchanged ever since.

In 2000 Orgier (winery) takes over, company oenologist Didier Couterier deploys all his expertise and knowledge of the terroirs to help this unique vineyard bloom. During the year, the vines are cultivated with due regard for the soil and plant life. Bud-pruning and buch-thinning by hand ensure both quality and quantity are optimised.
Horses are used rather than machinery when tending the old vines to protect their roots. The transported in crates to protect it in transit. It is then fully destemmed to yield softer tannins. The wine is meticulously aged in large oak barrels using Orgier's extensive skills.

In 2011 Papes terroir while further reducing the use of even organic pesticides by adopting natural composts and preparations and observing basic lunar rhythms, it is possible to get closer to nature and achieve a perfect alchemy between soil, plants and environment. This painstaking, highly-skilled approach helps maintain the highest quality for the legendary Clos de l'Oratoire de Papes Cuvée in its protected natural setting.
