Carignan Gris is a rare pink grape variety found in small quantities in Languedoc-Roussillon. It is a mutation of the Carignan grape variety that is commonly used as a blending grape in the region. Carignan Gris makes a fresh, simple white wine with good minerality. It is in decline, with only around one hectare remaining in the hills inland from Perpignan on the Mediterranean coast. It is rarely found as a varietal wine, but may be used as a minor blending partner in AOCs of Languedoc-Roussillon. The variety was first described in 1892, but is not commercially viable due to its late ripening and large grape clusters. The white variety Carignan Blanc is a mutation of Carignan Gris.
