Hecht & Bannier


Terroir: Faugères is a small appellation located on the somewhat inland on the Mediterranean coast to the west of Montpelier and Nimes.

Additional Information

“Grenache and Mourvèdre proportion is naturally raised in our blend for a very demonstrative wine throughout the whole ageing period. The silky Grenache shrouds the natural strength and tannic structure of the Mourvèdre just like an iron fist in a velvet glove …”-Gregory Hecht

    "A muscular but refined red, bursting with wild berry, herb and spice notes, underpinned by accents of cured meat and tea. Tangy acidity carries into the floral and fresh earth aromas on the finish. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Drink now through 2023."
