A gorgeous pale, dry Provence Rose in a very cool, glass-stoppered bottle. The winemakers are not shy to note in their wine an "immense charm and minerality with fennel, anise and purple flowers." And why should they be? From a great vintage and with a medal from Decanter, this is properly Provence -- seriously delicious Rose for the price.

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

92/100 and Silver Medal Decanter World Wine Awards, 2017

"Ripe raspberry, red apple notes; good intensity and weight, fresh acidity, nice complexity with lovely fleshy pears and mineral notes."

Vinous, Josh Raynolds

"Pale orange. Bright and energetic on the nose, featuring mineral-inflected red fruit, floral and herb scents. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red currant flavors and a touch of bitter quinine that firms the back half. Closes taut, dry and chewy, displaying good persistence and a subtle hint of lavender." Drink 2018 - 2022

Wine Enthusiast

"This is a stylish wine. It has fine acidity and light poised fruity character. With plenty of orange zest and a herbal touch, this blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah is a generous wine, ready to drink now."
