Pascal Blanc

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Pascal, Pascaou, Pascaou Blanc, Pascau and Plant Pascal. Nothing is known about a possible relationship to the red variety Monica Nera (with synonym Pascal Noir). It is a parent of the variety Sicilien. However, the parentage (parentage) is unknown. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is susceptible to powdery mildew and botrytis and yields neutral white wines. It was first mentioned as Pascau Blanc in 1715 as a "very common variety". Today it is grown in small quantities in Provence and the southern Rhône, where it is permitted in the AOC wines Cassis and Palette. In 2016, however, only 0.1 hectares of vines were recorded (Kym Anderson). It was a parent of the Téoulier Blanc variety, which was created by presumably natural crossing.
