Alain Grignon launches Les Crouzes Rosé


Languedoc-based LGI-Alain Grignon Wines has released a rosé addition to its Les Crouzes brand.  The new wine joins the original Vielles Vignes Carignan red, launched last year, and both are exclusive to the Co-op at RRP £4.99.

Grapes for Les Crouzes Vielles Vignes Cinsault Rosé 2009 are sourced from vineyards on the chalk and clay soils between Béziers and Carcassonne.  ‘Les Crouzes’ is the local term for the little caves and creeks dotted throughout the area.

 “Cinsault, like Carignan, is seen as an old and ‘traditional’ varietal in the Languedoc, and tends only to be used in blends these days,” comments UK Manager Peter Crameri.  “We have long-standing relationships with growers producing stunning examples of both grapes and Les Crouzes was created to showcase them as stand-alone, single varietal wines.”
