Winecurrent / Minervois 2005

2008-07-05 Winecurrent

Hecht & Bannier are Languedoc-Roussillon negociants sourcing premium fruit from carefully selected growers and sites. François Bannier provided this information directly to Winecurrent subscribers. “2005 was a very dry year and we sourced prime fruit (approximately 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache) primarily from the La Livinière and Aignes areas. We achieved a silky texture and vivacious blend by using only seasoned oak for ageing with just 60% in oak and the balance in stainless steel tank.” Oodles of ripe sweet dark berry and oaky aromas billow from this lovely wine. Boysenberry and other sweet luscious ripe dark berry fruit flavours drench the palate. There’s good balance and perceptible tannin, both providing ageing possibilities. Drink, after a two hour decant/aeration, now to 2014 along with a prime cut of grilled red meat. CAN$21.95
