Discover the grape variety: Mondeuse noire
Cultivated for a very long time in Savoie, it is not the black form of mondeuse blanche and Mondeuse grise is a natural mutation of mondeuse noire. According to Thierry Lacombe (I.N.R.A./Montpellier), the latter is the result of a natural intraspecific crossing between the black tressot and the white mondeuse. Mondeuse grise and Mondeuse noire are both registered in the official catalogue of wine grape varieties, list A1.
