Clairette Rose

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Alsacia, Blanquette de Limoux, Blanquette Rose, Clairette Rouge, Kleret Rozov, Picapoll Rosa, Piros Clairette and Piros Kleret. It is a somatic mutation with reddish berries of the white variety Clairette Blanche. The variety was already mentioned in 1835 in the Département Gard. It is permitted, for example, in white and rosé wines of the AOC area Clairette de Die. In 2009, 260 hectares were still recorded, but in 2016, no more stocks were shown (Kym Anderson statistics). This may be due to the fact that the two varieties Clairette Blanc and Clairette Rose are often grown mixed in the vineyard.
