Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A ripe and nicely structured Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with creamy cassis, plum sauce and linzer torte flavors carried by chestnut-tinged structure. The finish shows a mix of spice and licorice notes, while a note of alder wood fills in the background for added contrast. Best from 2013 through 2020. The Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep purple color and a somewhat modern style of up-front black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with a bit of licorice, spice box, and flowers. It is deep, round, generously endowed with silky tannin and no shortage of near-term appeal, although I suspect its capable of lasting at least a decade.

Patience, know-how, observation, intuition...these are the skills required to make and age our wines. Our passion and dedication were born in the renowned vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In 1859, Christophe Ogier established a wine-merchants' company called Ogier at Fils, which reached its full potential under Antoine Ogier from 1859 onwards. In 1948, our business became that of a 'negociant-eleveur' a buyer and producer of wines. Some years later, a merger took place with the firm of Bessac Caves des Papes in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, on of the major merchants and producers of wine, which had started as a cooperage. Thus, Ogier Caves des Papes has became one of the foremost houses in the Rhone valley, based in the heart of the village of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Read less

2009 was a fantastic year in Rhone. This common CdP is better than your palate :)
