The Domaine de L'Hortus Gran Cuvee Blanc 2014 is another gem from winemaker Jean Orliac, one of the great innovators in the tiny sub-appellation of Pic St Loup. Coming off his 94 point 2013 vintage, Jeb Dunnuck from The Wine Advocate calls this "One of the whites of the vintage from the Languedoc."

Located due north of Montpellier, twenty miles from the Mediterranean coast, vines thrive in the high altitude mountainous region which guarantees the perfect combination of cool nights and long summers. This vintage is less Chardonnay and more Viognier, offering classic notes of apple, pineapple and peach to go with hints of toast and brioche. Medium-bodied, juicy, pure and balanced, it's a serious white that rivals some of the very best of Burgundy!

Rating
"One of the whites of the vintage from the Languedoc...It offers terrific notes of white flowers, green citrus, orchard fruits, mint and building minerality to go with a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, balanced and classy style on the palate. Itís integrated almost every trace of its oak elevage and will continue drinking nicely for another 3-4 years." The Wine Advocate, 92 Points

Wine maker notes
Set among the Pic Saint Loup mountains, Domaine de l'Hortus is strikingly beautiful. "Hortus," was the name given by the Romans when they discovered, with astonishment, many gardens in this area. Today, critics view winemaker Jean Orliac's family estate as an modern masterpiece, and after spending three decades crafting wines in the Languedoc, he has finally accomplished worldwide recognition with his Grand Cuvee's, which Robert Parker's Wine Advocate annually scores 90+.
