Clos de L’Oratoire Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé AOC

Clos de l’Oratoire, located on Saint-Emilion’s northeast slope, where the terroir of Fronsac molasse is made by a layer of sandy soil and a clay subsoil, ideally suited to Merlot (80% of the vines).
In the middle of the 19th century, Beylot, a merchant from Libourne, acquired Château Peyreau, a vast property located northeast of St Emilion. Redeemed in the 1960s by Michel Boutet, this one splits it in two and succeeds in classifying “Premier Grand Cru” the best vines under the name “Clos de l’Oratoire”. In 1971, he sold the ensemble (Peyreau and Clos de l’Oratoire) to Count Joseph-Hubert von Neipperg .
The family has made wine in Germany since the 13th century, and viticulture has never stopped being a central part of their life. The custodian of some 800 years of winegrowing tradition, the talented Stephan von Neipperg, agronomist and son of Joseph-Hubert, manages the Bordeaux estates acquired by his family in 1971. Ably assisted by a team of professionals, he has brought the wines from these châteaux to the pinnacle of quality.
