Mas de Cynanque
Located in the heart of the Saint-Chinian appellation, the property extends on a pretty hillside, colored kaleidoscope of vineyards and scrubland. Saint-Chinian is a Protected Designation of Origin of the South of France, possessing an exceptional terroir, naturally elevated to the rank of Cru du Languedoc. The Mas de Cynanque, a 15-hectare estate, is the result of a passion for the vines and the wine of its owners, Violaine and Xavier de Franssu.
The Mas has a magnificent terroir, which is essential for the creation of fine wines.
The vineyard is worked with care and consideration and with the greatest respect for the environment, and animal and plant species.
The old vines of the Mas, rich in the noble traditional grape varieties of the Saint-Chinian Appellation, offer a particular complexity to the Domaine's wines.
A meticulous manual work and the precise development of each terroir allow the Mas de Cynanque to develop wines made of finesse and elegance. Their leading thread is concentration, balance and minerality.
