History

Regularly treated as a variant of Savagnin or another traminer variety, the origins of this grape are still unknown and the different DNA tests to identify kinship with other varieties showed a relationship with the Altesse. It is mainly grown in the valley of the Arve and more specifically in the vineyards of Ayze (AOC). Only this designation carries this variety in an area that represents only about twenty hectares. (22 ha in 2005, 30 ha in 1994)
