Discover the grape variety: Aspiran
Aspiran is a grape variety whose first traces go back to Gallo-Roman times. Originally from the Languedoc region, it is not very common nowadays. It has many alternative names, including verdal, ribeyrenc and riveyrenc. The vine, which is more or less upright, has average vigor. The ripening of the second late period allows the picking of compact, winged, conical bunches of medium size. The berries are protected by a resistant, albeit thin, skin, which is distinguished by its plum-colored hue, but can also appear pink, gray or white. The flesh is delicious with its spicy and sweet taste and is rich in juice. When vinified, it gives a product with a delicate colour, slightly perfumed and fine in the mouth. Although it does not fear arid and rocky soils, Aspiran is sensitive to winter frosts.
