Tasting Notes

Château Haut-Blanville is a family-owned wine estate, that was not inherited, nor was it purchased as is; since 1997 it has been run as a start-up. Béatrice & Bernard Nivollet created an estate based on a wine model developed centuries ago in Burgundy. Indeed, they were among the first to realize that Languedoc was gifted with an amazing wealth: a diversity of terroirs. Bernard decided in the early 90’s to craft great wines based on the identification of unique vineyard sites, to produce single parcel wine “from vine to bottle” at a time when most of the local wineries produced volume and bulk wine. Ever since, the team and all the processes have been designed to craft the best parcel wine their vineyards can produce. As of 2017, the estate has grown to 70ha (170 acres).

50% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir, 10% Cinsault. Fermented separately in stainless steel. Syrah was aged for 7 months in old barrique; Grenache Noir & Cinsault aged separately in stainless steel.


Critical Praise

89 points David Lawrason (Wine Align)

Horus is a blend of syrah, grenache and cinsault - all of which show on the jammy, peppery nose. There are some meaty notes, plus dried flowers. Quite complex! It is medium weight, warm and spicy on the palate, with a drying finish. The length is very good to excellent.
