Jean Orliac is one of the top producers in Pic Saint Loup and his wines are to be found in many of the top French restaurants. Domaine de l'Hortus is one of the standard bearers AOC Pic St Loup. In 1979 Jean and Marie-Thérèse Orliac planted some abandoned land at the foot of two dramatic cliffs, the Pic St Loup and the Montagne de l'Hortus. They also built a distinctive winery, constructed mostly of wood. In total, they now have 55 hectares of vines, split over two sites, with 43 ha red grapes and 12 ha white.

 

The Grande Cuvée red contains 60% Syrah with some Grenache and Mourvèdre and has a pleasing nose of violets, red fruits, liquorice and sweet spices. The Grande Cuvée rouge is aged in 2/3 new oak and 1/3 used barrels for fifteen months. Beautifully supple, displaying flavours of blackcurrant, vanilla and menthol.
