Bachet Noir

The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Bachet, Bachey, François Noir, François Noir de Bar-Sur-Aube and Gris Bachet. It should not be confused with its ampelographically similar sibling variety Beaunoir. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc x Pinot. The early-maturing vine is susceptible to chlorosis, both powdery mildews and botrytis, sensitive to drought but resistant to winter frost. It yields red wines rich in alcohol and acidity. The variety, which is threatened with extinction, is cultivated in the Aube département in the south of Champagne. However, no stock was recorded in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
