Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

• One of the oldest estate in Châteauneuf du Pape (1880)
• The myth, an ultra recognizable label still unchanged since 1926
• Combination of the 3 best Terroirs of the appellation
• Recognition of connoisseurs and wine gurus

In 1880, Edouard Amouroux acquired some superblysited vineyards in the district of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Right next to one of the vineyard parcels a small 18thcentury oratory or chapel dedicated to Saint Mark, which looks out over the vines, inspired the name that has become a legend.

That legend was born and since 1926 the bottle has carried the same label designed by the Amouroux family. The Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes is made from a 25-hectare vineyard that boasts a perfect balance between Chateauneuf-du-Pape’s three great soil types: the “Galets Roulés” or rounded pebbles, “Safres” or fine sand and “Eclats Calcaires” (limestone rock).
