Bergerie de l'Hortus white

This range comes in three colours : red, rosé and white. The red grapes grow in land parcels low in the foothills, whilst the whites grow at the bottom of the valley. In both cases the plants are less exposed to the elements than those that grow on the higher slopes. Overall, the grapes mature later than those destined for the Domaine de l’Hortus range. The whites grow in soil consisting of alluvial deposits mixed with hard limestone from the cliff sides and from softer limestone deposited on the slopes as the river carved out its bed. It’s a combination of soil type and climate that results in the grapes ripening very late. But it also results in the wine’s excellent balance between acidity and aromatic complexity.
