This red grape variety is prominent in Languedoc-Roussillon and Corsica, as well as in the North African vineyards of Tunisia and Morocco, largely thanks to its resilience to drought. Left uncontrolled, Cinsault (or Cinsaut) can thrive in high yields, but it is at its most impressive when kept to a yield of less than 40 hectolitres per hectare. It often produces light, easy-drinking reds, and when picked early can produce fruity and aromatic wines.
