This wine epitomizes the locale and history of the area. Always grown in the Languedoc, Grenache and Syrah are the pillars of the southern vineyards. On the field, Syrah occupies the upper slopes of what are called the edges villafranchiennes. These clay gravel soils are very acidic. Syrah is very well adapted and gives lively and concentrated wines. The middle part of the hills consists of white marl Miocene. These calcareous soils are best for Grenache, which in this locale, attain the proper maturity to be expressive. Thus, “Puech d’Hortes”, to marry the two main terroirs of the area. This land had to learn to manage it. Since the 70s, the vines have undergone many changes. Gradually, the size has been generalized to provide a more balanced production. The introduction of trellising has an optimal illumination of the grapes. The best vines are old and inadequate vines have been replaced by vineyards at high densities that ensure production quality.
