Baco Blanc

The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Folle Blanche x Noah. Synonyms are Baco 22 A, Baco 221, Baco Alb, Baco Blanche, Maurice Baco, Piquepoul de Pays and Piquepoul du Gers. Genes of Vitis labrusca, Vitis riparia and Vitis vinifera are included. The hybrid was crossed in 1898 by the French breeder François Baco (1865-1947). The late ripening vine is susceptible to chlorosis, flavescence dorée and both types of mildew, but resistant to botrytis. The berries have a subtle foxtone. Until the 1970s, it was the main component of armagnac. Due to the EU ban it was replaced by Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano Toscano) and heavily grubbed. In 2016, it will occupy 528 hectares of vineyards in France, with a declining trend (Kym Anderson).
