Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Châteauneuf du Pape 2014


SKU 1432014250


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. 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. Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes is a perfect partner for rich beef, and spicy dishes prepared with truffles and flavorful cheeses.
