Lhortus Pic St. Loup Cuvee Classique Coteaux du Languedoc 2005

Member Review by GrantC:

Basically, this was not displeasing but I've had better Pic St. Loup, even at the sub- $15 level. I paid $13 for this bottle, and I think it would've been at its peak in 2009 or so. As it was, it was just a little bit flat and not as interesting as I expected. Definitely benefits from an hour or so to breathe. After that: a decent nose with some smokey, subdued berry aromas. Starts out a bit tart and thin, but has a nice dryness on the tongue. Some earthy, mineral flavors come out gradually, and a nice long dry 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.
