The white grape variety comes from France. It must not be confused with the independent Claverie variety (Claverie Blanc). According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Ardonnet (red) x Crouchen (white). However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). It is an all-female grape variety. In 2016 no stocks were reported (statistics Kym Anderson).

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
