Semi-classic grape grown in the Savoie region of France. Used with another local grape, the Molette, to create a blend known as “Seyssell” white wine made to be drunk as young as possible. Also used for the superior “Roussette de Savoie” white wine blend created with Mondeuse grape wine. Once thought to have origins in Cyprus, the grape is now suspected of being related to, if not actually being, the Furmint grape of Hungary.
