The 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Villages gives up classic red and black fruits, dusty pebble-like minerality, licorice and earth aromas and flavors as well as a medium to full-bodied, lively, yet nicely textured profile on the palate. Mid-weight through the middle, with savory tannin, it will evolve nicely through 2019.
This was a superb lineup from Gregory Hecht and Francois Bannier. The wines show distinctive personalities as well as solid underlying structures. They also represent excellent values.
