Long and majestic, flowing into the Mediterranean Sea, the Rhone River has shaped the eternal landscapes and complex soils that are the wealth of those who work the vines on its two banks today. From North to South, rich and singular wine traditions have developed in the Rhône Valley.

At Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes, we invite you to discover the most sublime example of the oldest AOC in France: Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Maison Ogier promises a rich journey to experience the most beautiful terroirs of the northern and southern Rhône Valley.

Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes

At the gates of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the shade of greenery, a priory serves as an unusual home to the cellars used to vinify and age the great wines of Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes. Its history dates to 1880 when Edouard Amouroux married and received an enclosed plot of vines. In 1926, his son Léonce Amouroux renamed his wine “Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes” after the Popes who built their summer palace on the heights of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the 14th century.

Today, Clos de l’Oratoire des Papes is one of the appellation’s most emblematic wines, with a label that has remained unchanged since its creation. It represents the purest expression of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir. The vineyard is managed in keeping with the land and environment to cultivate the vivacity and richness needed by its soils. Edouard Guerin applies his passion and expertise wholeheartedly, in the vineyard and the cellar, to making deeper, more lively, more vibrant wines.

Maison Ogier

Founded in 1859, Maison Ogier is in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at the heart of the most prestigious appellation in the south of France.  

To interpret the subtle variations of this terroir and of the entire Rhone Valley, Maison Ogier has deepened its knowledge of the soils present in the different appellations and adapted its techniques accordingly, particularly in terms of aging. Its century-old cellars, in the middle of the village, hold more than 8,000 hectoliters of wood vats, tuns, demi-muids, barrels and truncated-cone vats.

The expertise of Maison Ogier is an invitation for a journey to the heart of the Rhone Valley terroirs, from North to South, with the river as a link —symbolized by an ‘i’ on Maison Ogier bottles— between the sunny generosity of the region and the finesse of its wines.
