About This Wine
Though not from his own vineyards, don’t be fooled into thinking this is any lesser of a wine from Cyril Fhal.
Meticulous winemaking like his estate grown cuvees, this high-elevation Syrah is elegant and pure as we’ve come to expect from this producer. Such a unique and individual expression of the variety, and a true one of one kind of wine.
Salinity, dark moreish cherries, and spice, this wine showcases both the excellent fruit sources Cyril has, as well as his attention to detail in producing wines of purity, elegance and beauty.
About Clos du Rouge Gorge
Cyril Fhal ,the man behind Clos du Rouge Gorge, is a bit of a legend in Latour de France, a village nestled in Roussillon region not far from the Pyrenees and Spain.
Kicking off his first vintage in 2002, he has proven that this region can produce bright, lithe and fresh expression of wines, also eschewing the AOC rules of Roussillon to focus on Grenache and Carignan.
It all starts in the vineyard for him, farming his century old plots biodynamically.
In the winery, he uses natural ferments, generally avoids oak influence, and uses minimal sulphur in his winemaking.
