Cinsault Wine

Cinsaut (otherwise spelled as Cinsault) is widely used throughout the south of France , and is used both as a varietal in a fruity and light wine, and a blending grape to accompany hardier grapes such as Carignan.

It also makes appearances in the Rhone to contribute to Chateauneuf du Pape (one of the 13 permitted grape varieties), and is otherwise known in the region as Picardan.
