Created in 1880, the 'Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes' is an iconic wine from the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. The story began when Edouard Amouroux obtained the famous plot of Syrah vines, through his marriage, located at the place known as Tresquoy. The property owes its name to the oratory dedicated to St Mark which stands on the edge of the plot. This terroir's great quality helped this wine to quickly become a leading product of the appellation. Complete de-stemming, partial crushing depending on the grape, the plots and the level of maturity. Part of the Syrah and Cinsault is cold pre-fermented at 8°C for 4 days. The other grapes are put into vats and fermentation takes place between 22 and 24°C in order to achieve a slower fermentation, encouraging varietal and aromatic extraction over tannic extraction. Post-fermentation maceration was carried out at between 26 and 28°C in 2014. Extraction is carried out by gentle pump-overs and release to ensure extraction of the finest tannins.
