The Pinot noir provides shades of red fruits in the assemblage, wild strawberries, red-currant jelly and mulberry bush. Moderate dosage keeps its liveliness and freshness and offers a creamy effervescence to the palate.

|Winery||Hecht ＆ Bannier|
|Varietal(s)||Chardonnay 55%, Chenin 25%, Mauzac 15%, Pinot Noir 5% Mauzac, historical grape variety from the Limoux area is very rare in Southern France and brings a lively acidity to the wines. Its exclusive use is reserved for the Blanquette production. For Cremant, prefer Mauzac in addition to Chardonnay. Native of the Loire Valley, Chenin has acclimatized to the fresh and mountainous climate of Limoux and we include up to 20% in our blend. In the Hecht & Bannier Cremant, the amount of Chardonnay used is relatively high, bringing about finesse and aromatic freshness but also the body of the wine|
Albeit a delicious aperitif wine, Rosé Brut Réserve will also fit more serious courses alike spicy tuna tartare or Bombay chicken curry and all sorts of red fruit desserts.
A minimum of nine months of aging on laths
For the Rosé Brut Réserve, 5 % of still red wine
Gregory Hecht and Francois Bannier created their business Hecht & Bannier in 2001. Their aim was to differentiate themselves from other wine producers by offering a unique range. Hecht and Bannier’s expertise is focused on the Languedoc and Roussillon region and they believe their wines allow wine-lovers to discover the extraordinary quality and wealth of their region. The cornerstone of their profession is their extensive knowledge of vineyards and cellars. Every year they visit hundreds of producers to select only the best wines. Often, their wines come from vineyards in the cooler foothills where it isn’t rare to see hundred-year-old vines. Once the long selection process has come to an end, they organize tastings to create the blends and decide on their options.
Conserving the typical Mediterranean strength in their wines while preserving balance and crispness, is their mantra for all the appellations they produce. Each wine bottle is fully representative of the region and terroir, serving as the benchmark that other wines are measured against.
The goal of Hecht & Bannier is to have their wines become the reference for quality in the region with a unique range of appellation wines.
