Overview

Cinsault rarely gets its due. It certainly makes delightful rosé wines and is essentially in southern French red blends where it brings a lightness a grace to these hearty wines. Rarely do you see Cinsault on its own as red wine. Fred and Alex Chaudière love Cinsault as much as we do not only for its freshness, forthright red fruit flavors, and more moderate alcohol.
