Landot noir

The red grape variety (also Landot 4511) is an interspecific new variety between Landot 244(Landal Noir) x SV 12-375(Villard Blanc). It contains genes from Vitis aestivalis, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis cinerea, Vitis labrusca, Vitis riparia, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in France by the name-giving breeder Pierre Landot (1900-1942). She was a crossing partner in the new breeding Frontenac. The early to medium ripening vine is resistant to frost and Pierce disease, but sensitive to drought and tends to trickle. It produces fruity, mild red wines with a foxtone. There are small stocks in France (1 ha), Canada, as well as in the US states of Illinois, Iowa, Pennsylvania (2 ha) and Rhode Island. In 2010, a total of three hectares of vineyards were designated (Kym Anderson).
