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