Cyril Fhal eschews tradition by ditching syrah and mourvèdre and letting grenache and carignan grown with biodynamic treatments do the talking. Transfixing deep purple colour, there is elegance in the glass from top to bottom. Surprisingly almost Burgundian in tannic structure, with trademark bold southern characters of blackberry, black cherry, violet and anise woven in. One to keep. Captivating.
