This powerful, earthy wine, produced by negociants Gregory Hecht and François Bannier, exudes southern warmth. It is packed with tannins and rich, dense black fruit flavors touched with herbs. This is a wine that just speaks of the tough soils of the Languedoc; will certainly age over several years.
