|Appellation||Cotes de Roussillon Villages|
|Brand||Hecht & Bannier|
Wine AdvocateOffering ample red and black fruits, smoked meats, spice and even hints of chocolate, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Villages is medium-bodied, pure and impressive on the palate. Showing more peppery nuances with time in the glass, this blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Mourvèdre and Carignan is already enjoyable, yet should evolve nicely for 4-5 years on its overall balance.
Wine SpectatorThis concentrated, polished red layers dried raspberry, dark chocolate and baking spice flavors that are supported by a firm acidity. Savory herb and mineral details linger into the chewy finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022.
