Cirené de Romans

The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Cerené, Cerigne, Cirané, Sereine de Morains, Serene, Sérénèze, Sérénèze de la Tronche, Sérénèze de Moirans, Sérénèze de Voreppe, Sereneze de Morains, Siranie and Superieure du Gresivaudan. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc x Chatus (the father variety is disputed, however). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). Incidentally, the same parents also gave rise to the Onchette variety. The variety is included in the famous seven-volume work "Ampélographie" by Pierre Viala (1859-1936). It is cultivated in the Ardèche département and in the Rhône valley. However, no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
