Hecht & Bannier Minervois 2008
Minervois is one of the great appellations of southern France. Situated on the rugged hillsides soaking up the warm Mediterranean sun, the region produces wines of combined elegance and power.
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. Thanks to this cold late summer, the best, deep colorful Syrah kept its intense and tasteful fruit. In the western village of Caunes, Syrah are planted on cooler places which take advantage of the first oceanic influences.
