Chambourcin

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Seyve Villard 12-417 (Seibel 6468 x Subereux) x Seibel 7053 (Chancellor). It was named after the municipality of Bougé-Chambalud in the Département Isère in south-east France, where the breeder owned a vineyard. Synonyms are 26-205 Joannes Seyve, Chambourcine, Chamboursin, John Saym, Joannes Seyve 26-205, JS 26-205, Shambursen and Zhoan Seiv 26-205, and include genes from the American species Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii and Vitis rupestris, and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1963 by the Frenchman Joannes Seyve (1900-1966) from the famous breeder family. The year is unknown, but in any case the variety was not marketed until much later in 1963. She was a crossbreeding partner in the two new breeds Regent and St. Vincent.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
