France adds eight new varietals to approved wine grape lists

News filtering out through official channels in France takes a little while but the bylaw of 23 December 2021 (published on 30 December) slipped through quietly last week, establishing eight new grape varieties on the country’s official list of approved grapes for wine production (they were introduced on a temporary basis seven years ago).

Of the eight, Xarel-lo (or “Xarello” in the official French text) is probably the best-known and can now cross the border from its Catalonian home into France. The remaining seven would be quite the test of a casual ampelographer’s knowledge.

Five hail from Corsica. They are the white Brustianu (likely originating from the Ajaccio region), Rossula bianca from southern Corsica, Cualtacciu (from the Balagne region in the north, near Calvi), and Uva Biancona. Vintaghju is the sole Corsican red variety of the bunch, remarkable for the deep color of its wines.

Another officially sanctioned French native is Felen, a white grape reportedly from the Aveyron department in southern France.

Finally, Fleurtai is a white, disease-resistant, interspecific hybrid produced at the University of Udine, Italy, by crossing Friulano (also known as Tocai, Sauvignon Vert, or Sauvignonasse) with the Kozma 20-3 hybrid. Fleurtai has the same parentage as Soreli (Blanc), already adopted in France and a permitted grape in the IGP Côtes Catalanesregion.

No news yet on which IGPs or appellations will adopt the latest varieties although for many it appears drought tolerance and disease resistance is a prominent factor in their adoption.
