Wine Advocate 88 points - Hecht and Bannier’s 2009 Minervois - assembled in tank when I tasted, and set to be bottled in July - was given a bit of exposure to some new demi-muids (whereas, for example, the 2008 had virtually no new wood) and at least temporarily that may have robbed the undeniably concentrated and ripe black fruits here of a bit of sap. Suggestions of game, crushed stone, and bitter herbs lend interest likely to grow in time. But I still suspect given the nature of this vintage that it will probably be best to enjoy this wine within the next 3-4 years. ”  (Jun 2011)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Chewy yet plush, with plenty of cream and spice to the red raspberry and plum flavors, which feature hints of red peach. The firm finish of slate, smoke and spice is filled with minerally notes. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2017.—K.M. (Jul 25 2012)

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 isn’t 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.
