Languedoc Rosé 2011

Hecht & Bannier

Grapes are sourced from vineyards with soils rich in limestone and clay that border the Etang of Thau, and from schist-rich vineyards from the area around Saint Chinian. Syrah for this Rosé is picked slightly earlier than the rest in order to retain a higher acidity level.

Vinification: The ripe grapes are pressed and vinified exclusively in stainless steel vats.

    "Fresh and fruity, with strawberry and pomegranate aromas over floral and herbal notes. Pleasantly fruity and refreshing palate, with red berry, fresh melon, and light tropical hints. Crisp finish ending with citrus and spice. Good house pour. Greek style octopus salad."

    "This was my first indication that French ross and I were about to have a new relationship. Id go so far as to say I loved this! Its from the Languedoc region and is equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault. A fruit salad of raspberries, strawberries, oranges mixed up with a little mineral. It also has decent acidity which means its great for food. And $11??? Are you kidding me? In in in."

    "This is lovely to smell with fine cherry skin, plum and earth aromas, tinged with a hint of cracked peppercorn. A bit round on entry, this quickly spread across the palate. While it is broad in the mouth, it is rather flat as well. Plenty of almost tarry red cherry fruit on the palate is accompanied by some peppery spice that pops on the moderately long finish."

    "This ros from the Languedoc region of France easily rates as the best buy of the tasting. It's a vivid Syrah-based wine that's crips and dry but bursting with ripe raspberry fruit."
