I find it VERY HARD to reconcile the relatively low profile of this Southern Rhone winery with the huge accolades it regularly receives. Some critics are now calling Oratoire the greatest of the Cotes du Rhone_Villages producers! And this is before we even consider the extreme value of the entire range. Buy with confidence.
The Les P'tit Gars ("the little mates") is produced under Biodynamic principles and is crafted from mature vines in a mix of Grenache (60%), Syrah (20%), with 20% Mourvèdre, Counoise, Cinsault, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, and Terret Noir, the latter from the Domaine's new plantings.
The vineyards of Oratoire Saint Martin are hand tended and managed organically with biodynamic preparations. The vineyards are regularly ploughed, with some plots by horse.
