Domaine de L'Hortus was established in 1978 when Jean Orliac, a professor of agriculture and avid rock climber, fell “head over heels” in love with the Languedoc region and purchased land in and around the beautiful Pic St Loup cliffs. After years spent befriending the vines and reviving 50 hectares of wooded slopes, Jean and his family bottled their first wine in 1990. With brothers, Yves and Martin Orliac now at the helm the Domaine is reaching new heights and is regarded as one of the 'great' estates in the South of France
Domaine l’Hortus is located in one of the cooler areas of the Pic Saint Loup appellation, with vineyards nestled in a stunningly beautiful valley between the two limestone cliffs of the famous Pic Saint Loup and the Montagne de Hortus. The valley offers the Sauvignon Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier, Chardonnay, Petit Manseng, and Muscat grapes protection from the elements. The soil is comprised of alluvial deposits mixed with both hard & soft limestone.
A delicious crisp white blend. Light and lively, Bergerie Blanc lights up the glass with pale, shimmering gold. The smooth, balanced palate tantalizes with complex notes of fresh herbs, mint, white flowers, and citrus.
The finesse and fullness of this cuvée make it an ideal aperitif, as well as a delicious companion to fish, shellfish, and cheese
