Petit Manseng

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Escriberou, Mansein Blanc, Manseing, Mansenc Blanc, Mansenc Grisroux, Manseng Blanc, Manseng Petit Blanc, Mansengou, Mansic, Mansin, Mausec, Miot (France); Ichiriota Zuria Tipia, Izkiriot Ttipi, Iskiriota Zuri Tipia,(Spain). The very old variety was first mentioned in 1562 in the Jurançon by a wine, namely "vinhe mansengue", but it was not until 1783 that a text distinguished between the two varieties Petit Manseng (with small berries) and Gros Manseng (with large berries). The French ampelographer Pierre Galet (1921-2019) had already noted great morphological similarities between the two varieties in 1990. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2021, it originates from a presumably natural cross between unknown parent variety x Savagnin Blanc (Traminer). It is not known whether there is a relationship to the red variety Manseng Noir; its parentage is unknown.
