In this delicious Syrah blend you can taste what a happy climate (hot and dry) Languedoc winemakers have. Grenache and Carignan ripen perfectly in Hecht and Bannier's select vineyards but the Syrah dominates here, giving a spicy aromatic to this ridiculously easy-to-drink Southern French classic. Perfect for barbeques or post-barbeque dinners...don't miss out!

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. The Hecht et Bannier Languedoc is produced with grapes certified organic by Ecocert FR-BIO-01, this wine is 100% matured in concrete tank to preserve its fresh, fruity aromas and flavors on the palate. Grapes are sourced from the village of Saint Chinian, Terrasses du Larzac in Languedoc and Vallée de l’Agly in Roussillon.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck

"The value priced 2013 Languedoc release is made from Syrah, Grenache and Carignan that was aged all in concrete tank. It exhibits light berry fruits, wild herbs, spice and licorice notes to go with a medium-bodied, balanced feel on the palate. It’s a good mid-week drinker. Hecht & Bannier always release well-made, high quality efforts."

16/20 Jancis Robinson (2012 vintage)

"Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Loads of hearty fruit on the palate. Lightish but super fresh and pure. Really modern and sleek, but very much French too. (RH)"
