TRADITIONAL VARIETIES

On request we can multiply any grape variety other than those mentioned below.

Here you will find the non-exhaustive list of the different varieties that we multiply. Each grape variety is characterized by its own cultural (vigor, productivity and precocity) and oenological (alcoholic, phenolic and aromatic potential) abilities.

To make the most of your terroir by harvesting grapes as often as possible, we can advise you on the varietal choice.

THE WHITES

This grape variety, cultivated in Burgundy, results, according to published genetic analyzes, from a cross between Pinot and Gouais B. Aligoté B is a semi-fine white grape, quite productive, which gives clear white wines, acidic, fresh and light.
