Le Péché Originel 2019
Este vino nace de un experimento que quiso realizar Stéphane Usseglio para preservar la pureza del fruto y del 'terroir' de los viejos viñedos de Cinsault ubicados en dos parcelas de la familia en Lirac. Para ello hizo por primera vez este año una vinificación totalmente sin sulfitos ayudado por las condiciones excepcionales en 2019 y la alta acidez natural de esta variedad.

Opinión de los críticos
From almost 60-year-old Cinsault vines planted on a sandy site, the 2019 Vin de France Le Peche Originel Sans Soufre Ajoute was made entirely in concrete. It's an enthralling effort, boasting intricate aromas of roses, black tea, orange zest and stone fruit. Expansive on the palate, it feels light and lacy at the same time, gently pulsing with vitality on the lengthy finish. How long it lives and positively evolves will no doubt depend to some extent on how it's transported and stored, as it's unfiltered as well as unsulfured, but I would drink it now for its wonderful perfume and complex flavors. - Joe Cerwinski.
The 2019 Vin De France Le Peche Originel is beautifully done, and to a degree reminds me of the carbonic Carignan from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Based on 100% Cinsault brought up all in concrete and bottled with no added SO2, its almost translucent ruby color is followed by a beautiful perfume of exotic red fruits, sappy spring flowers, new leather, and spice. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a light, silky, charming texture, moderate tannins, and solid length, this is just a beautifully charming, elegant red geared for drinking over the coming 2-3 years.
