Hecht & Bannier 2017 (France: Languedoc-Roussillon) (ID# 3423)

Name Hecht & Bannier 2017 (ID# 3423)
Varietal Red Blend
Region France: Languedoc-Roussillon
Notes "The 2017 Languedoc shows more fruity concentration than the 2016, adding cherries to the crushed-stone notes found on the nose. It's fresh, vibrant and juicy, with silky tannins and a lip-smacking finish. A blend of 55% Syrah, 25% Carignan and 20% Grenache, it rates high for sheer drinkability and value over the next couple of years." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Ripe raspberry and currant notes are backed by fresh acidity that highlights the licorice, floral and mineral details. Moderate, integrated tannins structure the tangy finish." (Wine Spectator)
