Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Chenin Blanc
International (planted after 1900) | 9 HA in Switzerland (0,06%)

Grape variety from the Loire (F) already mentioned in the 16th century around Anjou by Rabelais in his Gargantua, Chenin Blanc takes its name from the monastery of Montchenin in Touraine. The DNA test showed that the Chenin Blanc is a natural child of Savagnin, and a brother of Trousseau and Sauvignon Blanc. Sensitive to gray rot, Chenin Blanc can produce a wide range of wines, ranging from sparkling to dry, mellow or sweet wines. In Switzerland, its meager surfaces are mainly located in Geneva, then in Valais and in the canton of Vaud.
