"Domaine de l`Hortus produce some of the greatest wines of the Languedoc. Year after year Jean Orliac manages to combine the herbiness of the Langeudoc with wonderful purity of fruit. The Bergerie is made from a blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache, some sourced from othe rlocal vineyards. It is smooth, elegant and rounded with clean, slightly savoury plummy dark fruits. At this price, it`s a steal."John Wilson, Irish Times Wines of the Year."This is almost the second wine of Domaine de l`Hortus, in my opinion one of the greatest wines of the Languedoc, and one of my all time favourite wines. Year after year Jean Orliac manages to combine the rich herbiness of the Languedoc with wonderful purity of fruit. At a time when too many winemakers still think extra alcohol and extra oak mean quality wine, his wines stand out as beacons of light."

"This Syrah and Mourvèdre blend is pleasingly dark and has a wonderful nose of heather and warm red fruits. The wash is breathtakingly complex with strawberry lushness, tempered with peppery tones. This strength and complexity is a mirror of the French rugby team, and this wine may be the ideal accompaniment to an understanding of their fast, flowing, and intelligent game play."
Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post

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.
