"I have been a fan of this deliciously peachy yet refreshing white for a few years. It`s a highly unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Roussanne, the proportions of the various grapes vary from year to year, depending on harvest conditions. I don`t think it`s ever tasted better than in this vintage.
A perfect white for spring and summer."
Bottle of the Week, Mary Dowey, The Irish Times Magazine

Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc combine to produce something quite magical and unbelievably well priced. That is precisely what you get in Domaine de L`Hortus Blanc. There is ripe fruit coming through from the Chardonnay, a crisp backbone of acidity form the Sauvignon and a peachy delicacy from the notoriously difficult Viognier..."

Jean Orliac

"Domaine de L‘Hortus is a stalwart of the Wines Direct cellar and the Orliac family have been our friends for many years. Domaine de l’Hortus is nestled between the Pic Saint-Loup and Hortus mountains to the north of Montpellier. In fact, it was these mountains that originally brought Jean Orliac to the valley in the 1970s. Jean was an agricultural graduate as well as an avid rock climber, so he immediately recognised the potential of the abandoned parcels at the foot of the Pic Saint-Loup cliffs. He gradually acquired land in the area and began to make distinctive wine that draw finesse from this wild land. Domaine de l’Hortus is a tribute to the wild landscape of the Pic Saint-Loup and Hortus mountains. Their wines are widely acknowledged as some of the most successful and pioneering in the Languedoc.
