The Star Ledger / Languedoc Rosé 2012

2013-07-24 The Star Ledger

« About four years ago, I sat at the table with Gregory Hecht, a partner of this young negociant company – the French term for a firm or person who buys grapes from growers, or freshly fermented wine, and makes, bottles and markets the wine. Hecht & Bannier’s embryonic wine efforts impressed me then and the ensuing vintages still do.
The 2012 Languedoc Rosé is nearly equal parts grenache, syrah and cinsault, three classic grapes of this ancient region. Its rose petal color is as pleasing as the floral and red fruit scents, and the cherry fruit flavor is enlivened by the refreshing acidity. Enjoy a glass of thiswell-made wine with a summer vegetable frittata.  » – John Froy, A Glass of Wine.
