Hecht & Bannier Crémant de Limoux 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Barrel Tasting (93-94+) Ripe blackberry and dark chocolate are suffused with peat, smoky black tea, crushed stone, and iodine on a sumptuously ripe yet piquant palate, and there is admirable lift as well as oscillating, even electrically-charged interaction of meat juices, herbal essences, implosive berry concentrate and myriad evocations of this mineral to the long, layered "Here is an instance," notes Francois Bannier.

The Negociant Eleveur Maison Hecht & Bannier, specializing in red wines from the South of France, came to light in 2002. Our goal is to have our wines become the reference for quality in the region with a unique range of appellation wines. We are convinced that Languedoc Roussillon, the most talented vineyard in France, has not yet received the international recognition that it deserves: our wines allow wine-lovers to discover the extraordinary quality and wealth of our region. The cornerstone of our profession is our extensive knowledge of vineyards and cellars. Every year we visit hundreds of producers to select only the best wines. Often, our wines come from vineyards in the cooler foothills where it isn’t rare to see hundred-year-old vines. Once the long selection process has come to an end, we organize tastings to create the blends and decide on our elevage options. To conserve the typical Mediterranean strength in our wines while preserving balance and crispness, is our mantra for all the appellations we produce. Read less

A hint of minerality and a chervil note add interest to the sweet white cherry flavors of this wine, a blend of syrah, cinsault and grenache to chill for backyard parties.

Bright pink. High-pitched aromas of strawberry, cherry and white flowers, with a subtle herbal nuance gaining strength in the glass. Juicy and well-focused, offering sappy, mineral-accented red fruit flavors and a hint of warmth. Closes on a refreshingly dry, bitter note, with lingering spiciness and good length.

Juicy strawberry and melon flavors are crisp and pure-tasting. Hints of white pepper mark the finish. Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault.

Intensive Nase nach roten Beeren, sehr fruchtig und klar mit blumigen Noten. Weich, aromtisch und mit dezenter Säure im fruchtigen und trockenen Finale. Ein idealer Sommerwein in biologischer Qualität.
