Discover the grape variety: Baroque

From a morphological point of view, Baroque seems to have common origins with Tannat. Still called Blanc Bordelais, this white grape variety is distinguished essentially by the characteristics of its leaves. Those that are still young are both yellowish and downy. Their bumps have a somewhat bronzed appearance. The adult leaves have angular teeth. The leaves are not very three-lobed and have a pubescent, downy blade. The Baroque is grown in the Adour basin, mainly in Tursan and in certain vineyards in the Gers. Its production area is therefore not very large. This grape variety manages to resist oidium, unlike other varieties, and its harvest must be well done and free of rot. The harvest must be well done and free of rot, which leads to a better result and a more successful wine production. Moreover, the development of Baroque must be slowed down in time, bearing in mind that this type of grape variety only matures about twenty days after Chasselas.

The wine region of Franken

Franken, or Franconia in English, is a wine-growing region in the northwest of Germany's historic state of Bavaria. Though Bavaria may be more famous for its beer, Franken boasts a proud viticultural tradition and is one of the most unique regions in the country. There are just over 6,100 hectares (15,073 ac) of vines Planted in Franken and around 80 percent of these are white Grape varieties. Here, Riesling plays second fiddle to the often overlooked Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau.

Indeed, Silvaner lays claim as Franken's leading grape variety and is one of the only places in the world where it outperforms Riesling. This area is also home to the distinctive Bocksbeutal, an ellipsoidal bottle that is protected by the European Union. More than 40 percent of all Franken wines are bottled in the Bocksbeutel, which is often described as flagon-like in appearance. Only Franken and nearby villages in northern Baden are allowed to use the Bocksbeutal, with selected areas in Portugal, Italy and Greece permitted to employ their own variations.

The word of the wine: Muscat blanc à petits grains

A white grape variety cultivated since antiquity on the shores of the Mediterranean, it is considered the noblest of the muscats. It is mainly used to make sweet wines, often from mutage. In France, it is the sole variety used in many natural sweet wines: muscat-de-frontignan, muscat-de-mireval, muscat-de-lunel, muscat-de-saint-jean-de-minervois, muscat-de-beaumes-de-venise, muscat-du-cap-corse. Combined with Muscat d'Alexandrie, it gives Muscat-de-Rivesaltes. It is also used to make sparkling white wines (clairette-de-die; moscato d'asti and asti spumante in Italy) and dry wines (alsace-muscat). Powerfully aromatic and complex, its wines evoke fresh grapes, roses, exotic fruits, citrus fruits and spices.
