"Featured in The New York Times: 20 Wines Under $20: Reds for Winter Moods and Foods"

The dramatic sheer limestone cliff of the famous ‘Pic’ in Pic Saint-Loup provides a fitting backdrop to the wine Domaine de L’Hortus, which is made up, under the tutellage of Jean Orliac, of one of the most honest, likeable and talented wine-making teams that one could hope to meet.
Monsieur Orliac has been farming the calcerous terraces and quartz-rich escarpments for over three decades and knows better than anyone the minutiae of its soil-structure. His particular love is the Mourvèdre grape; a relationship which predates the variety’s current popularity.
The very special terroir, which forms a balcony to the Cevennes Hills, is located 24 km north of Montpellier, situated below what can best be described as ‘scree slopes’ Behind the drama and the dazzling whiteness of the limestone, there is superb terroir here, skillfully expolited in a series of wines which play to the tune of tradition and nurture the best possible results from the indiginous grapes of the area. The results are wines of great polish and personality, wines of which the region can be justly proud.

TASTING NOTES:Powerful and complex red nose, with notes of ripe red fruits, vanilla, licorice, of Sweet spices. The attack is frank, well-balanced, with very soft tannins and a long, spicy finish, gently liquorice, menthol with some nuances ... A nice album that, in his youth, ideally accompany your light lunches!
