DOMAINE DE MONT D’HORTES Pezenas

Situated at the bottom of the Herault valley, within sight of the sea, Monts d’Hortes is owned and run by Roch Anglade, a highly qualified oenologist who used to run the viticultural research establishment at Beziers before returning to the family estate. He makes a small range of varietal vins de pays from this tiny domaine, which is situated on the site of a Gallo-Roman dwelling. The quality here is astonishingly high. The Sauvignon is from 1.5 hectares, tank fermented and is crisp, well delineated and typical of its variety, and the Chardonnay is restrained and elegant, beautifully balanced, unimpaired by any oak flavours.

“Having already picked up a ‘Coup de Couer’ from the Hachette guide, I had high hopes for this Languedoc Chardonnay and it did not disappoint. A bold, buttercup yellow tinged with emerald, it has a lovely nose: my style of Chardonnay, with just a suggestion of honeysuckle and fig, amongst otherwise pristine orchard fruit aromas. On the palate there is plenty of fruit ripeness here, and the initial impression is of quite tropical, guava and pineapple, before that lovely core of cool, composed, white fruit crunch and crisp, Mandarin orange acidity comes through. A marvellous Chardonnay at a bargain price.” Tom Canavan’s Wine Pages.
