Clos de l Oratoire, St Emilion Grand Cru Classe, Bordeaux, France, 2004  

Grapes: 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc

"Blackish crimson. Sweet, ripe, fruity attack. Very easy and round. Very rich and flattering. Quite early maturing, No shortage of very very fine tannins. Dry finish, quite ‘pointed’."

17/20 points, Jancis Robinson, Jancisrobinson.com, August 2005

"I tasted this wine on multiple occasions and some of the samples were more impressive than even this note suggests! Two others were somewhat monolithic, but my instincts suggest the 2004 Clos de l’Oratoire is an outstanding wine. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it is extremely well-endowed for the vintage. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of espresso roast, chocolate, dried herbs, and plenty of sexy black currant and cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannin as well as an expressive, sensual style, it should drink beautifully for 10-12 years."

90/100 points, Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate, June 2007
