A flavoursome dessert red from France's Mediterranean South. Hecht's version of the Maury style has gained critical praise in France and abroad, balancing the rich body and sweetness of super-ripe Grenache against deliberate structure and acidity. At just under 100 grams per litre, there is enough sweetness for dessert or cheese but also plenty of dense mineral and vinous character, to keep you swirling and sniffing.

Its Origins

Hecht & Bannier is a négociant-éleveur company, a joint venture founded and run by Grégory Hecht and François Bannier, who are based in Bouzigues on the north shore of the Bassin de Thau. Having met at Dijon University in 1993, they decided to join forces to buy, assemble and age complementary wines from the very best growers in selected Languedoc-Roussillon appellation areas to create fine wines that are truly expressive of the terroirs chosen. Increasingly journalistic recognition are at testament to the quality of Hecht & Bannier.

What The Critics Say

91-92 Parker's Wine Advocate, David Schildknecht (2011 vintage)

"Tasted from tank just ahead of its intended late spring bottling, the Hecht & Bannier 2011 Maury leads with a much more intriguing and alluring nose than its – to be sure, delicious – 2010 counterpart. Buddleia and freesia garland caramel- and cocoa-infused black raspberry preserves, and these elements reunite on a seamlessly silken and expansive palate. As with other renditions of this appellation from Hecht & Bannier (who, incidentally, rely on just a single source), this elixir’s sweetness is perfectly proportional. What’s more, there are cut and counterpoint from subtly piquant pit fruit as well as stony notes, which taken together with a surprising degree of brightness and juiciness, makes for an exhilarating experience even given its strongly confectionary and confitured aspects. I would expect this to remain outstanding through 2020."
