Discover the grape variety: Jurançon noir

Jurançon noir is a grape variety that comes from the Agenais region in southwestern France. It is a cross between malbec and folle blanche. Although it is quite similar to the white Jurançon, it is not the black form of the latter. Its bunches are compact and short, medium-sized and cylindrical-conical. Its berries are spherical-ellipsoid in shape. They are attached to short pedicels that are warty and strong. The skin is dark black and has a strong bloom. This variety has an average budding time and is hardy, vigorous and fertile. It gives a regular production, but it must be pruned short so that it does not quickly become exhausted. It fears grey rot, mildew, drought and grape worms. Jurançon Noir makes common, slightly alcoholic and lightly colored wines. Vinified as a rosé, it produces fruity and lively wines.

The wine region of Bellet

Bellet is a small appellation for red, white and rosé wines from the hills around Nice, in the France/provence">Provence region of southeastern France. Despite Provence's penchant for rosé, a balanced blend of all three colours is produced under the name Bellet. Nice's proximity to the Italian border - and thus to the western vineyards of Liguria and Piedmont - is reflected in the style of Bellet wines and particularly in the Grape varieties used in their production. Bellet's key white grape variety is Vermentino, a variety that originated in Liguria, but which now accounts for 60% of all Bellet white wine.


The wine region of Provence

Provence is a wine region in the far southeast of France, best known for the quality (and quantity) of its rosé wines and for its Warm, mild Climate. The modernization that is taking place in many of the traditional wine regions of southern France has not yet taken place to the same extent in Provence, but there are Clear signs of change. The region's Grape varieties, in particular, have come under scrutiny in recent decades. Traditional varieties such as Carignan, Barbaroux (Barbarossa from Sardinia) and Calitor are being replaced by more commercially viable varieties such as Grenache, Syrah and even Cabernet Sauvignon.

Andrew Jefford: ‘2021 has been the year of all the miseries’

How’s the weather been this year? Awful. ‘La nature m’écoeure’, one of my wine-growing friends posted on Facebook on 8 April, having been out to look at the frost-crippled shoots on his vines that morning: ‘Nature disgusts me’. It takes a lot to make a wine-grower feel that. He wasn’t alone. Jeremiads echo around the northern hemisphere as 2021 closes. It’s been the year of all the miseries. None suffered more horribly than the growers of Germany’s Ahr valley, where floodwaters caused by the fou ...
