Mauzac Blanc

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Aiguillon, Becquin, Bekin, Béquin, Blanc Laffite, Blanc Lafitte, Blanquette, Blanquette Aventice, Blanquette de Limoux, Blanquette Sucrée, Caspre, Clairac, Durancon, Gaillac, Gamet Blanc, Maousac, Mausac, Mausat, Mauza, Mauza Blanca, Mauzac, Moisac, Moissac, Moysac, Mozac, Mozak Belyi, Peron, Perrond, Plant de Gaillac, Primard, Queue Fort, Queue Roide and Sudunais. It must not be confused with the variety Ondenc (with synonym Béquin) or the morphologically similar Italian variety Torbato (Tourbat in Roussillon). The parentage is unknown. According to DNA analyses, the pink-berry variety Mauzac Rose is a colour mutation. Mauzac Blanc was a parent of the Négret Castrais variety. However, there is no relationship to the red variety Mauzac Noir. The late-maturing, frost-hardy vine is susceptible to black spot disease, eutypiosis, both types of powdery mildew and botrytis. It produces rustic, acidic white wines with an aroma of wilted apple peel.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
