Tasting Notes

The nose opens with stone fruits and dried herbs like menthol and anise. The palate gives notes of apricot and peach with white flowers. It is dry and refreshing with enough acidity to keep the freshness.

WINE INFORMATION

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.

This is part of the Le Loup Dans la Bergerie range of wines (which means “the wolf in the hen house”) is produced by Domaine L’Hortus. These wines are made from grapes purchased from vineyards close by, just outside the Pic St Loup appellation. The farming is sustainable with no chemical additives used in the vineyards, unless there is a thread of losing an entire vintage.

After harvest grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and aged for an addition 4 months.
