Bergerie de l'Hortus Rouge Pic Saint Loup Domaine de l'Hortus Bottle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/><br/> Quite why the second wine of Hortus is called Bergerie is something of a mystery but it sounds rather nice and suitably bucolic. The vineyards are in the tiny appellation of Pic Saint-Loup, with its steep limestone escarpments, stark in the Mediterranean sunshine of the hilly up-lands to the north of Montpellier.<br/><br/><br/><br/> This red wine is dominated by Syrah, with a little Grenache and Mourvèdre added. The Syrah is sourced from vines immediately beneath the Pic Saint-Loup cliff. The wine has black fruit aromas and a palate which combines notes of sousbois, damsons, myrtles and coffee; the finish has an almost eucalypt mintiness, and is complex. <br/> (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)<br/><br/>

Domaine de l'Hortus:
Nice to visit. In a stunning region of France the wine makery and vinyard are situated just of the main road. The tasting room is above the botteling line, which gives a true feeling of authenticity.
