Hecht & Bannier Faugeres 2011
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
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.
Pretty standard rose-- just fine, but no claims to fame.
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.
good color. fruit+wood. nice fruit,wood integration,smooth,good finish.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Languedoc Roussillon in France. 2011 Hecht & Bannier Languedoc Rose 750ml
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.
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.
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.
