This white grape variety is a new breed between Madeleine Angevine x Riesling. The crossing was made by Christian Oberlin (1831-1915) in Alsace, France. The new variety Lafayette was created with the same parents. She was named after the French politician Lazare Graf Carnot (1823-1823), who was a member of the board of directors and Minister of the Interior of Napoleon. In 2016 no stock was recorded (statistics Kym Anderson).
