Petit Meslier

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Arino, Barnay, Bernet, Crène, Lepine, Mayer, Melié, Melié Blanc, Meslier de Champagne, Meslier Doré, Meslier Jaune, Meslier Petit, Meslier Vert, Orbois, Parisien, Petit Meslier à Queue Rouge and Saint Lye. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the varieties Welschriesling (Graševina), Menu Pineau (Orbois) or Meslier Saint-François. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc x Savagnin Blanc (Traminer). Direct descendants are the American hybrids Cunningham and Isabella as well as Meslier Noir.
