In 1960, during the division of Château Peyreau, Michel Boutet, the owner of the vineyard, decided to regroup his best parcels under the name of Clos de l'Oratoire, in order to obtain their classification in Grand Cru of Saint-Émilion. Given the quality of the wine produced and the richness of its terroir, it is quickly done for the young Clos de l'Oratoire. The two properties were bought in 1991 by Count Stephan Von Neipperg, owner of several areas known in Bordeaux. He enlarges the vineyard to 13 hectares and applies a careful and qualitative work of the vineyard: the Clos de l'Oratoire renews in 2012 its status of Grand Cru Classé. Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.
Full, intense and flattering wine. The bouquet unveils a complex aromatic palette without heaviness. The bright fruit blackberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, mingles with empyreumatic aromas.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and aromas of currant and strawberry which are clearly outlined around a pleasant woody note.
