Discover the grape variety: Gros Colman
From the South Caucasus, perhaps in Georgia, some writings give it as coming from Russia, a country close to the previous one. For a long time, it was grown in greenhouses, particularly in Belgium, but also in England, France, Holland and Japan. It was rarely cultivated in the field, but a few attempts were made without much success on the banks of the Rhine, in the Tarn et Garonne region and in Thomery in the Seine et Marne region. Today, it is no longer multiplied in nurseries and is therefore in danger of extinction. It is thought to be the result of a natural intraspecific cross between white tigvoasa or furjmony feher - a Romanian variety with female flowers - and black kadarka. There is a clone that takes on a very characteristic purple color in the fall, with larger berries, larger bunches and later ripening.

The word of the wine: Oenologist
Specialist in wine-making techniques. It is a profession and not a passion: one can be an oenophile without being an oenologist (and the opposite too!). Formerly attached to the Faculty of Pharmacy, oenology studies have become independent and have their own university course. Learning to make wine requires a good chemical background but also, increasingly, a good knowledge of the plant. Some oenologists work in laboratories (analysis). Others, the consulting oenologists, work directly in the properties.
