FRENCAIS

 

The “Domaine” of Hortgrand is situated 40 KM N.W. of Montpellier in the village of Montpeyroux between the Limestone foothills of the Larzac and the alluvial plain of the Herault.

The vineyards and cellars are situated in Le Barry, one of the oldest Hamlets of Montpeyroux, dominated by it’s “Chateau Du Castellas”, castle dating from the 11 th century.

The vines are classified as AOC Montpeyroux, Coteaux Du Languedoc. As well as Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache, they are planted with Carignan, the king of “ mont pierreux” (stoney mountain) vintages. Some of the vines such as the Cinsualt are over 40 years old and thus yield generous grape harvests and good quantities of wine.

Each grape type is individually fermented, only then is it blended to achieve the ideal finished wines. From picking, right through to bottling, a great respect for the grape and the environment is paramount. The grapes are harvested only when fully mature.
