Vinification
Some of the grapes are vinified as whole bunches, the vintage dictates the percentage of stalks retained. Cofermentation of grape varieties is the rule, to benefit from the synergies that occur between our varieties during vinification. This co-fermentation contributes to the complexity and depth of our wines. Fermentations start at around 19-20°C and run for the most part at around 25°C. They end at temperatures between 28 and 32°C, depending on the vintage and the plot. Extraction is mainly carried out by small, fractional pump-overs, which favor extraction of the softer tannins, but also by prolonged maceration with the cap of marc immersed. Tannins are thus extracted more by infusion of the skins into the must than by mechanical action.
Élevage
The wine is aged for 12 months in truncated French oak vats, followed by 8 months in concrete tanks.
Notes de dégustation
This wine has a clean, brilliant color. The nose is complex, bearing the scars of late summer hail. Aromas of ripe fruit, prunes, figs, strawberries and pepper, as well as hints of dried flowers, hay and dried fruit (almonds), add a beautiful aromatic complexity. On the palate, this is a concentrated wine where the smoothness of Grenache is balanced by precise tannins.
Accords mets et vin
This 2022 vintage goes perfectly with navarin d'agneau, couscous provençal or a royal hare.
Conseil de service
L’Oratoire des Papes red is to be served between 15°C and 16°C. We recommend decanting for a few hours or opening the bottle 12 hours before drinking.
Temps de garde
This cuvée can be kept for a minimum of 8 to 10 years, and up to 15 years or more for the best vintages, such as 2016 and 2019.
