Wine Advocate 90 points - Chocolate-covered plum and cherry; cassis and blackberry headily scent and lushly saturate the plush palate of Hecht & Bannier’s 2009 Cotes du Roussillon Villages a less complex or dynamic wine - tasted from tank just prior to bottling - than its 2008 counterpart (which was a hard act to follow by any measure) but with a seductive richness all its own. Nor is this simply about fruit: a deep red meatiness and saliva-inducing salinity permeate the palate and add the finishing enticement to take the next sip. The small amount of Mourvedre present here seems surprisingly efficacious. Look for this excellent value to reward for the next 4-6 years. (Jun 2011)

Producer
The Negociant Eleveur Maison Hecht & Bannier, specializing in red wines from the South of France, came to light in 2002. Our goal is to have our wines become the reference for quality in the region with a unique range of appellation wines. We are convinced that from Roussillon to Provence, the most talented vineyard in France, has not yet received the international recognition that it deserves: our wines allow wine-lovers to discover the extraordinary quality and wealth of our region. To conserve the typical Mediterranean strength in our wines while preserving balance and crispness, is our mantra for all the appellations we produce. The cornerstone of our profession is our extensive knowledge of vineyards and cellars. Every year we visit hundreds of producers to select only the best wines. Often, our wines come from vineyards in the cooler foothills where it isnít rare to see hundred-year-old vines. Once the long selection process has come to an end, we organize tastings to create the blends and decide on our elevage options.
