Alain Grignon Finds Les Crouzes Pink Partner

Alain Grignon is not a man to rest on his laurels, so ever since the release last year of his Les Crouzes Old Vines Carignan he has been busy hunting for its perfect pink partner. 

The result is Les Crouzes Old Vines Cinsault 2009 (RRP £5.19, Co-op) - a refreshing, zesty Rosé also produced from what Alain describes as one of the Languedoc's "forgotten" varietals.

"Just like Carignan, Cinsault is one of my region's traditional grapes and mostly found as a component in blends," he explains.  "But if you find - as I have - the right combination of terroir and climate then you can produce a wine entirely from this grape."
