Nouveau millésime, le 2015 était noté : Robert Parker 92/100, Bettane & Desseauve 15,5/20
Ce joli blanc provient des vieilles vignes de l'Hortus, et s’ouvre sur des senteurs fruitées (abricot sec) très intenses, ainsi que des notes de fleurs blanches (acacia), des nuances vanillées et de fruits secs. Un vin plein et rond en bouche avec des notes fraîches, une finale longue et élégante, sur l'abricot, les fleurs blanches et des notes vanillées… Puissant et complexe !

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 16/20 (Millésime 2014) (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)

About the vineyard : Un pied sur le Pic Saint-Loup, l’autre sur l’appellation Coteaux du Languedoc et les IGP, la famille Orliac possède 60 hectares de vignes dans la garrigue, au cœur de l’Hérault. Avec plusieurs gammes de vins réparties sur cette large palette de terroirs (bergerie-de-l'hortus, clos-du-prieur), elle œuvre pour des vins de grande justesse, notamment les rouges, fins et élégants. Situé au pied des impressionnantes falaises de l'Hortus, le domaine produit des vins sur des terres en altitude situées au-dessus de la vallée de la Buèges, et bénéficie à ce titre d'un climat plus frais. Le grand soin et 2017 confirme ce statut de référence locale en rouge.
