Grape Variety

Cinsaut and Grenache are two grapes commonly grown in southern France to use in red and rosé wines. The two varieties have much in common; they are both lighter bodied than other Rhone varieties, have strong resistance to droughts and perform best when overcropping is avoided.

At the top end of the scale these wines might be from the prestigious Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, and command great prices. At the other end they may be very simple Vin de Pays/IGP wines, perhaps even released as a bag-in-box for everyday consumption.

    For information on the Languedoc appellation and its wines, see Languedoc.
