French black variety from Burgundy.
Early sprout and maturation.
CLUSTERS AND BERRIES
Small-sized cluster and berries.
PESTS AND DISEASES
Sensitive to mildew, botrytis and leafhoppers.
Medium vigour. Adapts well to all types of soil, reaching its highest expression in clay-limestone soils. Grapes are very sensitive to sunburn and the skin opening in overmaturation.
Produces full-bodied red wines for ageing, with intensity, finesse and aromatic complexity. High potential for accumulating sugar, with medium acidity, which is sometimes insufficient.
