With its hearty imperviousness to dryness and drought, Cinsault is a staple of the Languedoc vineyard. It’s used in small amounts as a blending grape throughout the region but is most prized for the freshness and aromatics it brings to rosés. On the delicate side, the Lascaux rosé has a coolness that evokes the first tentative days of spring.

There is so much contained in a glass of good wine, It is a gift of nature that tastes of man's foibles, his sense of the beautiful, his idealism and virtuosity.
