The red grape variety (also Seibel 6905) is an interspecific new breeding between Seibel 4595 (= Seibel 451 x Seibel 405) x Seibel 4199 (Seibel 85 x Couderc 132-11). Genes from Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera are included. The hybrid was crossed by the French breeder Albert Seibel (1844-1936). It was a crossing partner mostly under the name Seibel 6905 in the six new varieties Garonnet, Roucaneuf, Seyve-Villard 18-402, Vignoles, Villard Blanc and Villard Noir. It no longer plays a role in cultivation; no stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
