Clos du Rouge Gorge

Blanc - 2019 - Cyril Fhal

This is fruity, taut, fresh and intense juice with notes of white fruit and quince... Palate: there’s a lot of gas on opening, best to enjoy this among natural wine purists. The finish is elegant, saline and mineral. Marvellous for cellaring, Cyril’s wines require time and patience.

It is unfiltered, instead spending an extra month in vats to be naturally decanted before bottling.
