Jurançon Blanc

The white grape variety comes from France. Synonyms are Brachetto Bianco, Braquet, Braquet Blanc, Dame Blanc, Jurançon, Plant de Dame, Plant Debout, Quillard, Quillat and Secal. This is not a mutation of the red Jurançon Noir variety. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Folle Blanche x Prúeras. The medium ripening vine is particularly susceptible to downy mildew and botrytis. It produces white wines of simple quality, which are used for the distillation of Armagnac and Cognac. It is not permitted in the white wines of Jurançon. She was a cross-breeding partner of the new variety Select. At the end of the 1950s, the variety still occupied almost 6,000 hectares of vineyards in southwest France. In 2010, however, only seven hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
