Bergerie de l'Hortus red

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 red and rosé vines grow in shallower scree with limestone elements closer to the source rock. They are, therefore, more sensitive to drought. The maturing process requires great care in the cellars, with relatively short periods macerating and maturing.
