SKU: 10114

This is the Premier Crú of Pic Saint Loup and Languedoc. It's bursting with Grenache and Syrah fruit enhanced by spices and herbs gifted by the wild sage and thyme in the L'Hortus vineyards. Wonderfully aromatic with never a hint of over-ripeness. A landmark wine from a landmark family. Grown mid-slope on dark soils: the Grenache in the north, Syrah in the south and Mourvèdre in the shade. An extended maceration period, 25-30 days, followed by six months in vats before blending, then maturing in barrique and barrel, both new and one and two-year-old, for 12 months.

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.
