Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Châteauneuf du Pape 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Eye: Intense ruby robe with beautiful reflections of old rose petals. Nose: Frank and spicy with black pepper and licorice, surprising floral notes of grass and acacia, evolving onto more classic notes of strawberry, cherry and fresh blackcurrant, and subtle notes of camphor and menthol. Palate: The attack is frank and ample, reflecting the gourmand and delicate characteristics of the estate and magnificently held by fine tannins with a silky length, strengthened by the freshness of the menthol and scents of the garriques.
