A delicious white wine blend of two Southern French varietals which complement each other: Piquepoul Blanc and Roussanne. Bordering the Etang de Thau, they have the benefit of relatively cool terroirs on which vines “stare” at the sea. Both varietals being late ripening grapes, they fit the Mediterranean climatic conditions. They allow the aromatic flavours preservation until the harvest at the end of September or early October for some Piquepoul. The Piquepoul Blanc brings this crunchy and vivid character, which, blended with the Roussanne citrus fruits and white flowers notes, complete perfectly the aromatic pallet and give us a delightful volume in mouth.

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

89/100 Wine Advocate, Robert Parker ( 2013 )

"The 2013 Languedoc Blanc is a delicious blend of Picpoul, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc that was brought up all in stainless steel. It offers classy white peach and citrus blossom to go with a medium-bodied, juicy, borderline racy style on the palate. This is a perfect meal starter to enjoy over the coming year.Hecht & Bannier always release well-made, high quality efforts."
