Domaine l'Hortus Pic Saint Loup Rose de Saignee 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery Tasting Notes This wine is on the three colors red, white and rosé. It comes from fields located down slope to the red varieties and parcels in the valley bottom for whites. We have in both cases intermediate exposures less marked than the Côtes medium plots. The maturities are generally later than those encountered in the cuvée Domaine de l'Hortus. For the red and rosé, soils formed on limestone scree bursts are shallower, closer to the bedrock. In fact, the vines are more susceptible to summer drought. Maturities result obtained a job with finesse cellar and relatively short maceration farms. (Translation) WINE NOTES Vineyards: Mourvedre (situated under the Hortus cliff) has a south-west exposure; Syrah (situated under the Pic Saint Lopu cliff) has a northern exposure; and Grenache an intermediate exposure. Farming Practice: Sustainable with organic practices (moving towards organic certification), aging: Stainless steel tanks ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Domaine L'Hortus A young agronomist studying at the University of Montpellier back in the 70's discovered an abandoned piece of land nestled between two facing limestone cliffs. The grape vines had grown wild and the huge olive trees were ancient; it was obvious to Jean Orliac that this location had been cultivated in ages past, producing the classic Mediterranean trio - olives, wine and wheat, and that this would be an ideal site to produce a "Grand Vin," the dream of this passionate man. Starting with 5 hectares and acquiring another 50 soon after, Jean Orliac named his property "l'Hortus", the Latin translation for "The Garden", as an homage to the land and its tradition. Early on, his grapes were transported to the local Cave Cooperative for pressing; in 1990 his cellars were built which allowed him to vinify and bottle on his own property.

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.
