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.

Very pretty aromas of crushed blackberry and raspberry with flowers. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a mineral chocolate and tea aftertaste. Complex and subtle. Better than the 2003. Best after 2010. 5080 cases made... Very pretty aromas of crushed blackberry and raspberry with flowers. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a mineral chocolate and tea aftertaste. Complex and subtle.
