Tasting Notes

The aromas are quite concentrated with notes of strawberry coulis and cherry skin. The palate gives lots of strawberries -- seeds, flesh and all. This is dry, delicious, iand mmensely drinkable with integrated tannins and a long finish. 


In the late 1970s, Jean Orliac, a professor of Agriculture at the University of Montpelier, purchased land in a valley between the limestone cliffs of Pic St Loup itself and the Montagne de Hortus in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. Together with is wife, Marie-Therese, the duo revived 50 hectares of wooded land and neglected vineyards, transforming them into thriving vineyards that would supply grapes to local coops and later be used for wines produced at their own estate. The winery was built in 1990, the same year the Orliac’s began keeping their grapes and bottling their own wine. Today, the estate is managed by Jean and Marie-Therese along with their four children.

Le Loup Dans la Bergerie (which means “the wolf in the hen house”) is one of the three ranges of wines produced by Domaine L’Hortus. These wines are made from grapes purchased from vineyards close by, just outside the Pic St Loup appellation. This blend of Grenache and Syrah is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for four months in tank.
