Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"Hecht and Bannier's 2010 Minervois is as usual Syrahdominated, with Grenache and Carignan (whose levels had yet to be finetuned) filling merely supporting roles, and despite my skepticism about the Syrahcentric appellation rules and official politics in this sector of the Languedoc, one has to say that Hecht and Bannier's bottlings make a strong case for that grape. (Mind you, a couple of their sources are growers in the La Liviniere sector whose top bottlings you will find lauded elsewhere in this report who are willing to selloff some of their juice.) As with this team's 2010 A.O.C. Languedoc blend and, for that matter, so many other wines of its vintage this combines the extra measure of glycerin and jamlike touch to its dark cherry and black raspberry fruits that we found in 2009 with a depth of mineral dimension; hightoned herbal inflections (licorice, tamarind, mint); high umami; and lift, vivacity, and infectious juiciness such as characterized 2008. This finishes with real vibrancy."
