About Francois Ducrot

François Ducrot, is the winemaker and “magician of vinification” from Domaine Enclos de La Croix in Lansargues, Languedoc. A couple of years ago, François realized that several talented local organic farmers in Aspiran, 45-minute drive west of Montpellier, were selling their grapes to co-ops to be mixed with other grapes in the production of bulk wine. What a pity!

François decided to buy these grapes and create a negociant that showcased some vibrant wines from an all-but-unknown terroir of Languedoc.

Francois only purchases organic grapes. Vinification is performed with indigenous yeast and no additive except sulfites when necessary (up to 50 ppm).

In August 2019, Ducrot vinified a 100% Cinsault, a rare varietal by itself but delicious to drink. Cinsault is both a table grape and a Vitis vinifera. The skin is very thin and the berries are large compared to Grenache, Syrah, or Mourvèdre.

It produces a lot of juice and makes for very light, energetic reds. Focusing on a grape that is mostly used for rosé or added to a blend, bringing the alcohol levels down and acidity of the wine up, and producing a suave, aromatic, and crisp red from a super-hot region that would satisfy any wine drinkers craving.

Drink it with a little chill and enjoy!
