France » South of France » Hecht & Bannier » Languedoc 2009

Summary

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.

"In Southern France, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, extends the most ancient and the largest vineyard of our country: the Languedoc Roussillon.

As our vine-growers take benefit from favorably climatic conditions and remarkable sunshine weather, they have been following for quite a long time the principle of an environmental friendly viticulture.
This is how our region has become a pioneer in developing cautious agriculture and organic viticulture. It offers a vast variety of terroirs that we suggest you discover in this fruit driven wine, matured exclusively in concrete tank, without any use of barrels.
As a result of one year’s winetastings and selection, our Languedoc is blended by the most brilliant fruits of Syrah, from the area of Saint Chinian and the Terraces du Larzac with the tasty Grenache from Roussillon."

    "The Hecht & Bannier 2009 Languedoc - whose sources are virtually the same as those of its immediate predecessor, and which had only been in bottle for a couple of weeks when I tasted it - once again offers sappy concentration of black fruits (approaching confiture) with a bittersweet cast thanks to fruit pit and licorice and tamarind. It displays a density and ripeness beyond that of previous instantiations of this cuvee, but I have learned my lesson with the 2007 about how this bottling can blossom with a couple of years in bottle, and I suspect that there will be more complexity with time - some, perhaps, even in the short-run - even if the forward nature of the fruit here suggests it will be best drunk over the next 2-3 years."
