Winemaker Notes

Bandol and Mourvedre are always linked: this grape variety finds its finest expression in that region. The outstanding fullness of its ripe and deep tanins is balanced by Grenache softness and the spellbinding fruit of the wines from of the very old vines of Cinsault.

Crunchy and complex, rich, full and ripe but also precise and extremely elegant. With no doubt, it is the wine for several decades.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
The blend of old-vine Cinsault with Mourvèdre has produced a dense wonderfully perfumed wine. Rich in tannins, it also shows great black fruits and equally great concentration. This is a powerful wine that will be ready from 2018.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Dark and inviting, with a tightly coiled core of warm mulled anise, plum and blackberry notes and a frame of singed alder and mesquite accents. The broad, solid finish reveals a pleasant leathery echo. Best from 2017 through 2022.

Hecht & Bannier, Bandol, Provence, France
Image of winery
Formed in 2002, Hecht & Bannier makes wines intended to become reference points for the Languedoc-Roussillon, France’s largest and most confounding winemaking region. Founders Gregory Hecht and François Bannier: "To conserve the typical Mediterranean strength in our wines while preserving balance and crispness, this is our mantra for all the appellations we produce."

Provence’s leader in concentrated and age-worthy red wines, Bandol is home to the dense, deep and earthy Mourvèdre grape. Like Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bandol produces characterful reds that, while approachable in their youth, are typically designed for the cellar. Given its coastal, Provencal situation, Bandol naturally produces an assortment of charming, aromatic rosés made of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
