The white grape variety is a new breed between Dabouki x Chasselas. The crossing was made in France in 1956 by the French ampelographer Paul Truel (1924-2014) on behalf of the INRA in Montpellier. The very early ripening vine is mainly used as a table grape. It is cultivated in France in the two départements of Hérault and Vaucluse. In 2016, 203 hectares of vineyard area were declared with a decreasing tendency (statistics Kym Anderson).
