Grape Variety

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains



Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is a white grape variety originally from Greece and characterized by medium-sized berries that grow in medium clusters

In Alsace, this grape is grown on 345 hectares, which is 2% of all vineyards, and has been present in the area since the 16th century. It produces sweet, light and dry white wines that are superbly aromatic... and a perfect aperitif. In the Languedoc region, this variety is sometimes called Muscat Blanc or Muscat de Frontignan. The vines are not particularly resilient. Used to produce VDN (vin doux naturel) wines, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is the only variety that may be used to make Muscat VDN, except Rivesaltes wines.
