The white grape variety comes from France. Synonyms are Laouset, Lauzet Blanc and Lercat Blanc. The parentage (parenthood) is unknown. It must not be confused with the Petit Courbu variety due to morphological similarities. The late ripening vine is susceptible to botrytis. It produces spicy, alcohol-rich white wines with moderate acidity. The endangered variety is grown in south-west France and is authorised in the Béarn and Jurançon areas. In 2010, three hectares of vineyards were designated with an increasing tendency; ten years earlier it was only one hectare (Kym Anderson).
