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

Beautiful bright watermelon color. A funky nose with a bit of earthiness combined with some strawberry, raspberry, and stone fruit notes. Nice classic characteristics to it.

amazing potpourri nose but the palate is kind of dull. standard table wine that would be great to bring to a party. Paired well with my cheeseburger.

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.

The 2005 Côtes du Roussillon Villages - from what Hecht and Bannier call "a perfect vintage for Roussillon" - pours forth aromas and juicy sumptuous profusion of ripe black raspberry and cassis, but smoke, pencil lead, salt, chalk, and wet stone are never any farther from the surface than is the mother rock in most of these vineyards. And for all of this wine's expansive richness, there is ample contrast from juniper and marjoram, as well as a delightfully cool character to its long finishing fruit, complemented by invigoratingly tart fruit skin and crushed stone. With tight but refined tannic underpinnings, this will be worth following for at least 4-5 more years.

The Hecht & Bannier 2005 Cotes du Roussillon Villages is 70% Grenache, with small components of Carignan, Syrah and Mourvedre, and was sourced from a variety of communes. If you don't claim to smell crushed stone or the pungent scrub of arid Catalan France in the nose of this wine, then you never will. In addition, intense blackberry and cassis as well as roasted game strongly suggest themselves. With a striking combination of creaminess of texture with insistent pungency and brightness - herbs, black pepper, crushed stone, and smoke all seem to make tactile contributions - this reaches every corner of the palate, then lays down a black-top of tar, cassis, herbal concentrate, and stones for a finish. It should be worth following for at least 2-3 years.
