Tasting Notes

"The 2015 Clos de la L'Oratoire is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked between 25-30 September at 45 hl/ha. Matured in 40% new oak, it has perhaps the most reticent bouquet at the moment, yet there is very pure dark cherry and blackberry fruit here, very "cool" aromatically and with several swirls of the glass it begins to find its voice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. There is good density here, very well balanced, very precise with perhaps the best tension on the finish that I have discerned in this particular Saint Emilion. This comes highly recommended." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2016, Issue 224), Ratings: 91-93, Drink: 2018-2032

 

"Crushed plum, cassis and melted red licorice notes are seamlessly intertwined here, with bright chalky minerality and a lovely floral lift throughout. Richly layered and youthfully compact but with excellent cut and drive through the finish." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (3/2018), Ratings: 94, Drink: 2023-2035

Notes on sale of Futures, Pre-Arrivals, and potential US Tariffs: 

1.  As of June 15, 2021, the US and the EU reached an agreement to suspend tariffs resulting from the Boeing-Airbus aircraft trade disputes.  Such tariffs are now suspended for the next 5 years.

2.  Futures are expected to be available for delivery 2 years following the sales (e.g. the 2019 vintage, sold in 2020, will be delivered in 2022 or 2023).

3.  Pre-Arrivals are items currently stored in our Bordeaux cellar, or in transit from France to the US.  It usually takes 1-6 months for Pre-Arrivals to become available for delivery, depending on the stage of the import process.

4.  As far as futures and pre-arrivals are concerned, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates which may be impacted by factors beyond our control.  We will notify you once your wines have arrived in our cellar.

5.  While a buyer of Bordeaux wine futures locks in an allocation of the specified items, final delivery of the purchased items from France to the US may be impacted by intervening and unforeseeable events.  Despite our exercise of due diligence, additional costs or delays may be caused by such intervening and unforeseeable events and/or "an irresistible, superhuman cause, or by the act of public enemies of the state of California or of the United States".  In such events, if a buyer does not accept unforeseeable costs or delays, the sole and exclusive remedy is a cancellation of the futures order concerned and a refund of the original purchase price.  We are NOT liable for any lost profits on a cancelled order.
