Domaine de l'Hortus red:
Grape Variety: Syrah, Mourvèdre
Region: Coteaux du Languedoc A/C, France
The rolling hills of Pic St.Loup give beautifully balanced flavours of juicy black fruits and spice.
'This is almost the second wine of Domaine de l'Hortus, in my opinion one of the greatest wines of the Languedoc, and one of my all time favourite wines. Year after year Jean Orliac manages to combine the rich herbiness of the Languedoc with wonderful purity of fruit. At a time when too many winemakers still think extra alcohol and extra oak mean quality wine, his wines stand out as beacons of light. Made from a blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache, some sourced form other local vineyards. It is smooth, elegant and rounded with clean, slightly savoury, plummy dark fruits. At this price it is a steal.' John Wilson, Irish Times.
'This Syrah and Mourvèdre blend is pleasingly dark and has a wonderful nose of heather and warm red fruits. The wash is breathtakingly complex with strawberry lushness, tempered with peppery tones. This strength and complexity is a mirror of the French rugby team, and this wine may be the ideal accompaniment to an understanding of their fast, flowing, and intelligent game play.' Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post
Domaine de l'Hortus white:
Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Roussanne
Region: Vin de Pays du Val de Montferrand, France
Aromas of peaches are followed by a full, rich mouthful of fruitwhich is balanced by ripe acidity and has great length.
'Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc combine to produce something quite magical and unbelievably well priced. That is precisely what you get in Domaine de L'Hortus Blanc. There is ripe fruit coming through from the Chardonnay, a crisp backbone of acidity form the Sauvignon and a peachy delicacy from the notoriously difficult Viognier.' Winner of Modern European Wine of the Year, Sunday Tribune
'I have been a fan of this deliciously peachy yet refreshing white for a few years. It's a highly unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Roussanne, the proportions of the various grapes vary from year to year, depending on harvest conditions. I don't think it's ever tasted better than in this vintage. A perfect white for spring and summer.' Bottle of the Week, The Irish Times Magazine
