Southern France is a treasure trove of overachieving, food-friendly reds made from ancient vines, like this fruity, supple blend.
What You Need To Know
Les Cépages Oubliés translates as “the forgotten grape varieties,” which isn’t strictly accurate when it comes to Cinsaut and Grenache, the fruity, fragrant grapes that star in this Languedoc-Roussillon red. Both varieties are widely planted in the region, which spans France’s Mediterranean coast. But what were largely forgotten for decades were many of the region’s old vines (vieilles vignes), as farmers looked to new, high-yielding vineyards that could harvested by machine. This blend draws on ancient, stingy vines that yield especially flavorful grapes. It gets its light, supple fruitiness from Cinsaut, a Rhône variety often used to make rosé.
