The red grape variety (also Landal, Landot 244) is an interspecific new variety between Seibel 5455(Plantet) x Seibel 8216, containing genes of Vitis berlandieri, Vitis cinerea, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis riparia, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the hybrids was done in France by the breeder Pierre Landot (1900-1942). He then used them as crossing partners in the name-similar new breed Landot Noir. The early maturing vine is resistant to frost, but susceptible to powdery and downy mildew. It produces strong red wines with a subtle foxtone, but is also used as a rootstock. In France, the variety is mainly grown on the Loire; in 2010, it covered 43 hectares of vineyards (Kym Anderson). Small stocks also exist in Switzerland, Canada and the US state of Pennsylvania.
