Bourboulenc

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Asprokondura, Blanquette, Blanquette Menue, Bourboulenco, Bourbouleng, Bourboulenque, Bourbounenco, Burbulen, Clairette Dorée à Paulhan, Clairette à Grains Ronds, Clairette Dorée, Doucillon, Grosse Clairette, Malvoisie, Ondenc, Pe Comprido, Picardan, Roussette and Roussette du Vaucluse. It must not be confused with the Clairette, Ondenc, Picardan or Roussette (Roussaou) varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. There is no genetic or historical evidence for a Greek ancestry suspected by some ampelographers. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2004, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) x unknown partner. However, this is based on only 14 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The variety was a crossing partner of the new variety Clairette Dorée Ganzin.
