This Rosé, is a blend of 70% Muscat à Petit Grains and 30% Grenache Noir. 5-day whole-cluster maceration, then fermentation & ageing in demi muids for 8 months. Unfined, unfiltered & bottled without any added sulfites. The result is a wine that showcases the floral notes of Muscat with the red fruit and spice characteristic of Grenache Noir. A complex rose that is well suited for food pairing. 

Notes on the producer

From superstar Rousillon winemaker Cyril Fhal. His Clos du Rouge Gorge comes from the village of Latour-de-France whose schist and gneiss terroirs are some of the best in Roussillon. Cyril bought 5ha of old vineyards in 2002 (since when he has gradually added another 2.5ha) having previously worked with Mark Angéli and Charlie Foucault in the Loire, and then as the chef de cave of Mas Crémat in Roussillon. Yields are tiny, in the 10-20hh range, and back in the new cave that he converted four years ago, the fruit is gently handled with extractions more like infusion, élevage in 500/600ltr demi-muids and foudres, no fining or filtration and total sulphur levels of just 10-15mg/l.

Hors Champs is Cyril Fhal's negociant side project, using purchased fruit from organic vineyards that he has meticulously selected throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon.
