CARIGNAN is one of the most widely planted grape varieties in the Languedoc Roussillon region, south of France. These wines are high in alcohol, deep coloured, full bodied and lots of tannin. It needs time to develop becoming gamey, spicy and rich in flavour. When blended it gives the wine structure and body.
CINSAULT probably originated in France and many regions use Cinsault for fruit and finesse and is usually combined with Carignon and Grenache Noir.
