Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2014

Hecht & Bannier

Terroir: The appellation of Cotes du Roussillon is located in the heart of Frances sunny south with an abundance of warm Mediterranean sunshine and cooling winds from the sea. Hecht et Bannier source this selection from the villages of Tautavel, Estagel, Caramany, Espira de l’Agly and Lesquerde.

Vinification: The Cotes du Roussillon is a traditional blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan and Syrah vinified and aged in a combination of epoxy lined concrete tank, large neutral oak casks and about 20% in new oak barrels producing a wine of powerful, ripe, juicy fruit with an elegant, refined finish.

Additional Information

Quickly accessible, the sensual, soft, round and smooth Grenache sides offer to us an immediate pleasure in mouth. Aromatically full, sapid and cheerful, our Côtes du Roussillon Villages shows a spicy and peppery side for a voluptuous wine, obvious.

    "A fresh, focused red, with harmonious cherry, currant and mineral flavors bound together by tangy acidity. Moderate, integrated tannins detail herb and tea notes on the spice-tinged finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2021."

    "A chuggable, well-made, textured red that delivers plenty of black fruits, leather, and dried earth aromas and flavors, the 2014 Cote du Roussillon Villages (60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance Mourvèdre and Carignan) is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and textured, with ripe tannin. It’s another high-quality wine from this consistent label."
