Lacombe Thierry

The French ampelographer Thierry Lacombe works at the "École Nationale Supérieur Agronomique", a branch of the University of Montpellier. In close collaboration with Jean-Michel Boursiquot (*1958) and other colleagues, the identity of almost a thousand grape varieties was determined by means of extensive DNA analyses. In 2013 he published an article with the parentage of 828 grape varieties. These included over 100 direct descendants each of the two leading varieties Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) and Hebén.
