The producer

In 1996, Yves Falmet, originally from Champagne, acquired his vineyard in Languedoc. An extremely qualitative terroir in the Saint Chinian Appellation area.

The Domaine des TERRES FALMET was thus born following a thunderbolt for these magnificent hillsides which had been able to discover during his studies as an oenologist in the region.

In fact, no one had wanted these lands because of their relief, as the growing conditions there were harsh and perilous. The eastern part of the vineyard had already been abandoned, the rest would have inevitably followed.

A very difficult vineyard to cultivate for which he fought relentlessly to save it and create his own cuvées, the quality of which is now internationally recognized.

The wine

The "Cinsault" cuvée is one of the extremely rare red wines, produced solely from this grape variety (mainly considered to prtoduce rosé wines).

Cinsault is one of the old Languedoc grape varieties, endangered and wrongly unloved. Indeed, grown on a qualitative terroir and well vinified, it gives very nice red wines.
