    Variety Description

    Cinsaut

    Cinsaut is a red wine grape, whose heat tolerance and productivity make it important in Languedoc-Roussillon and the former French colonies of Algeria, Lebanon and Morocco. It is often blended with grapes such as Grenache and Carignan to add softness and bouquet.

    Country Description

    France

    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description

    Provence

    Provence wine region is located in the southeast of France. The region is known predominantly for its rosé wine, though wine critics such as Tom Stevenson believe that the region's best wines are the spicy, full-flavoured red wines. Rosé wine currently accounts for more than half of the production of Provence wine, with red wine accounting for about a third of the region's production. The main grape variety throughout Provence is Mourvèdre, which is the primary component in many red wines and rosés. It is often blended with Grenache and Cinsault, with the latter being used as a significant component in most rosé. Other significant grape varieties, used primarily in blending, include Braquet, Calitor, Folle and Tibouren. The major white wine grapes of Provence include the Rhône varieties of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache blanc, Marsanne and Viognier as well as Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Semillon, Rolle and Ugni blanc.
