The white grape variety (also Blanc de Saillon) is a new variety between Raffiat de Moncade x Chardonnay. The crossing was commissioned by the INRA and carried out by the Basque Pierre Marcel Durquéty (1923-2016) in France with the support of the University of Montpellier. The early ripening vine is resistant to botrytis, but tends to trickle. It produces a fruity, acidic white wine. The variety is grown in small quantities in southwest France (Département Charente-Maritime) and in the south (Département Ayveron). In 2010, two hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
