ORATOIRE ST MARTIN

The Abeille-Fabre families are owners of Mont Redon in Châteauneuf du Pape. A multigenerational business, at the helm today is Pierre Fabre. Pierre’s excitement in acquiring “Domaine de l’Oratoire Saint-Martin” cannot be overstated. Pierre strongly believes (in fact, he says, I know) that this is the best site in Cairanne. Located in Cairanne not far from Châteauneuf du Pape, this is historical vineyard of this appellation recently elevated to the label of Cru. Before the regulation changed the wines would simply be referred to as Cote du Rhone. Now, in the same way Chateauneuf du Pape is both a village and a Cru, Cairanne is a village and now a Cru. The style of Cairanne is very elegant with moderate fruit concentration (less than Lirac, Gigondas and of course Châteauneuf) but great length and complexity. The whites have slightly more texture than Mont-Redon style. Farmed according to organic and biodynamic standards for ten generations, this vineyard is an amazing acquisition and sits nicely along Pierre’s Mont Redon. Winemaking at the estate under the previous owners, the Alary brothers was very low interventionists. Read Natural. This is a philosophy that Pierre is excited to continue and explore. The estate was organic since the 90’s and bio since the 2000’s.

TASTINGS & EVENTS YOU MIGHT LIKE

WELLINGTON TASTING | SOUTHERN RHONE WITH KYLE

Cairanne of Southern Rhone with Kyle Settled in the Village of Cairanne, the historically low intervention wines of Domaine Oratoire St Martin are elegantly concentrated with exquisite finish. Following its purchase by familie Abeille-Fabre, with four generations of cultivation experience at Mont Redon, and Pierre Fabre at the helm, they have aimed to continue this legacy.
Cairanne has long since been recognised by its growers for its standout terroir, but it was not until 1953 that the village name could be featured on its Cotes du Rhone AOC wines. Subsequently, it was granted Cotes du Rhones Villages Cairanne status in 1967, with its ascent culminating in the 2018 inclusion into the 17 Crus of the Rhone. 95% red, 5% white by production, and tonight we will be lucky enough to try both.
