Note : Bettane & Desseauve 16/20
La Grande Cuvée du domaine de l'Hortus porte très bien son nom : intense et très complexe sur les fruits secs, la réglisse, la violette, la vanille, les fruits rouges et une touche mentholée. L’attaque en bouche est riche, aux tanins soyeux, avec du volume et de la rondeur. Très belle finale, toute en complexité et en élégance, et quelle longueur !

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 16/20 (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.

Toujours bon.
Rating and review of M. JACQUES R. Published on 02/05/2019
Superbe vin tout en finesse et très aromatique avec une longueur peu commune. Les tannins sont bien fondus et malgré sa jeunesse ce vin peut se déguster sans attendre.

de la complexité, de la diversité, un ravissement. Un vin qui fait l'unanimité à chaque fois.
