Hecht & Bannier is at the forefront of a revolution in quality in this region. Each of their wines is typically based on 5-10 different parcels found to be of exceptional quality. These blends are then vinified and bottled to best represent each appellation in the range. All Hecht & Bannier wines are aged for two years in large, traditional “Demi Muids” (600 liter wood barrels) which insures preservation of fruit quality and imparts “resistance” to the wines allowing them to age well. A portion of each wine is aged in neutral concrete vats to focus the expression of fruit and appellation.
