2019 Clos de L'Oratoire, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480631 92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Another beautiful wine from the Neipperg family, the 2019 Clos De L'Oratoire has a bright purple color as well as great aromatics of cassis and blueberry fruits along with spring flowers, candied orange, and spice. With medium to full-bodied richness, a tight, compact mouthfeel, good concentration, and terrific length, it's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for two decades. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos de l'Oratoire comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of stewed cherries, mulberries and black raspberries plus suggestions of powdered cinnamon, potpourri, tobacco leaf and wild sage. The generously fruited, medium to full-bodied palate is laden with juicy black fruit and spicy accents, framed by soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long with an invigorating lift.

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Clos de l'Oratoire was picked from 23 September to 7 October at 51hl/ha and matured in 50% new oak. For the vintage, it has a slightly broodier nose than its peers, but still attractive with blackberry, briary, undergrowth and a trace of peppermint. The palate displays more vivacity with fine-grain tannins and an almost Left Bank pencil lead note emanating from the 19% Cabernet Franc. Quite linear but persistent on the finish, this is a very well-crafted, elegant, intellectual Clos d'Oratoire from Stephan von Neipperg's team. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

PLEASE NOTE: 2019 Bordeaux Futures are being offered without any added tariffs. If there are applicable tariffs at the time the wines are imported in 2022, we will contact you with the option to pay tariffs to have the wine delivered, or cancel the order with no penalty. 92-94 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "A muscular, powerful wine, Clos de l'Oratoire is deep and expressive from the very first taste. Inky dark fruit, lavender, espresso, gravel and new leather all build as this potent Saint-Émilion shows off its character. Even with all of its fruit intensity, Clos de l'Oratoire has plenty of tannic heft." (6/2020)
