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 a 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.
