Marsanne

The white grape variety originates from France. It is probably named after the commune of the same name in the department of Drôme. Synonyms are Avilleran, Avilleron, Ermitage, Ermitage Blanc, Ermitazh, Hermitage, Grosse Roussette, Johannisberg, Malvasia Bianca di Lucania, Marsan, Marsanne Belyi, Marsanne Blanche, Marsanne Drome, Marzanne, Metternich, Rousseau, Roussette Grosse, Roussette Saint-Péray, White Hermitage and Zrmitazh. It must not be confused with the Roussanne variety (Petite Roussette), with which there is a parent-offspring relationship according to DNA analyses carried out in 2010, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities.
