Domaine de l'Hortus Pic Saint Loup Grande Cuvee 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

50% Mourvèdre, 40% Syrah, 10% Grenache. This is the top wine from this fine estate. 100% barrel aged, year after year this wine is at the top of its appellation. The wine drinks well in its youth, but after 5 years in the cellar really begins to shine. The nose of bright red and black fruit with tinges of pepper and spice leads into a full-bodied wine with medium dark extract. Always showing good acidity from the high percentage of Mourvèdre, the well-coated tannins are ripe and well integrated. Long and showing pleasant mineral notes on the finish.

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.
