Cinsaut – Grenache – Syrah is a blend of grape varieties commonly grown and blended in southern France. This classic combination is used most commonly to make Provence's famous rosé wines, which display crisp, aromatic flavors of berryfruit and spice. The blend is also used to make some red wines, particularly in the appellations of the southern Rhone Valley and in the Languedoc-Roussillon area. The three work particularly well together as a rosé, as each have complementary features. Syrah typically frames the wines with its structure and deep color. Dark fruit flavors such as blueberries and blackberries come from Syrah, while raspberries and earthy aromas come from the Grenache. Cinsaut, often used in the smallest proportion, lifts the aromatics of the wine with its soft, perfumed characteristics.
