Increasingly journalistic recognition are at testament to the quality of Hecht & Bannier.
What The Critics Say
90/100 Wine Spectator, Kim Marcus
"Concentrated and muscular, this red is packed with ripe black currant, blackberry tart and ganache flavors. Licorice and incense aromas add a rich touch. Chewy tannins grace the long, spice- and herb-infused finish. Syrah, Mourvdre and Carignan. Drink now through 2020."
Parker's Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2012 Faugères, which is a blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan, has a straightforward feel to its sweet black fruits, chocolate and mineral-like aromas and flavors. There’s good tannin here, it’s medium-bodied and it has a nice finish. It should have 4-5 years of solid drinking. Hecht & Bannier always release well-made, high quality efforts."
17+/20 Jancis Robinson
"Syrah, Mourvèdre. Opulent, supercharged nose – loads of impressive flavour here – liquorice, plum, blackberry. Powerful yet not lumbering. Dark chocolate on the finish."
