Dégustation de Vins de Fêtes Ce vin livre une jolie version de la syrah qui le compose en grande majorité. Puissant et intense, il envahit le palais d’une matière fruitée, réglissée et épicée, dénuée de toute lourdeur, à accorder avec du gibier ou une volaille en cocotte. Le duo de négociants-éleveurs quadrille le Languedoc-Roussillon à […]

Jancis Robinson / Minervois 2006 - 2009-07-10 About Minervois

17/20 Aged in demi- muids. Syrah with Grenache. Very deep crimson. Sweet, sumptuous, rather burgundian nose and all the vigour of a fine Chateauneuf on the palate. Should be GV. Very long and no hurry to drink this. Tannins a- plenty. 14% – Drink 2010-14

(90-91)/100 Hecht & Bannier’s 2007 Minervois leans heavily on Syrah from La Liviniere, along with some Grenache and Carignan. Prior to bottling (and with the blend subject to small final adjustments), it smells of cassis, marjoram, and white pepper. Lush and silken in texture on the palate, it combines richness with vivacity and freshness of […]

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht) / Minervois 2006 - 2009-06-30 About Minervois

90/100 Mint, marjoram, rosemary, roasted meats, and black fruit compote are liberally doled out to the nose and palate from Hecht and Bannier’s 2006 Minervois, which favors overwhelmingly Syrah, plus some Grenache and scarcely any Carignan or Mourvedre. A welcome fresh, subtly tart juiciness (reflecting the vintage’s relatively high acidity) builds in the finish, while […]

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht) / Minervois 2005 - 2009-06-30 About Minervois

90/100 Summer drought and early September rains took their toll on the number of lots that could be selected by Hecht and Bannier for their 2005 Minervois, and hence the volume of finished wine, but the results are unusually fine-grained and brightly black-fruited for this vintage (so many whose wines are reduced, tough-textured, or generally […]
