MINERVOIS

Sources
La Livinière, Pépieux, Siran, Aignes, Caunes

Varieties
Mainly Syrah, Grenache, Carignan

Blend
Most of our selections come from the dry area of Les Mourels and Les Coteaux which extends from Caunes to Aignes, where the wines on slopes grow hand in hand along with the garrigue on sandstone soils, less sensitive to dryness. In the western village of Caunes, Syrah are planted on cooler places which take advantage of the first oceanic influences. Growing on limestone clay soils, Syrah is able to withstand to a dry year thanks to the clayey subsoil water retention capacity. Our Minervois expresses the sun-filled and spicy personality of the Mediterranean Syrah in harmony with the old Grenache softness from Pépieux vineyards and the intense Carignan.

Maturing
30 % tank
20 % demi muids (new and one year old wood)
20 % barrels of 225L (new and one year old wood)
30 % barrels of 400L (one and two years old wood)

Tasting
Onctuous and sensual, Minervois reveals intense berry fruit flavors. Dominated by the rich and peppery Syrah, this wine is exceptionally soft with silky fruitiness coming from the Grenache.

About us

Company details

The Negociant Eleveur Maison Hecht & Bannier, dedicated to mediterrean wines, 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.
