Tasting Notes:
rated: April 1, 2007 , Robert Parker erobertparker.com
"90-93 points: This property has been resurrected beautifully by perfectionist wine guru, Stephan von Neipperg, and his increasingly popular and respected winemaking consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt. A big-time sleeper of the vintage, the 2006 Clos de l’Oratoire reveals notes of smoked meats, blueberries, raspberries, cedar, and spicy oak. Opulent, fleshy, rich, and atypically fruity and forward for the vintage, this medium to full-bodied, gorgeously proportioned St.-Emilion is ideal for drinking during its first 12-15 years of life."

3 stars "Perfumed bouquet. Well handled fruit. Round, harmonious but a touch dull on the finish. 2012-18." Best 2012-2018
