The white grape variety is a new breed between Baroque x Chardonnay. It was cross-bred in 1956 by the Basque Pierre Marcel Durquéty (1923-2016) in France on behalf of the INRA with the support of the University of Montpellier. The early-ripening, low-yielding vine is susceptible to botrytis. It produces full-bodied, aromatic white wines with relatively little acidity. The variety is therefore well suited for noble sweet wines. However, it is only cultivated in very small quantities in southwest France in the departments of Charente, Haut-Loire and Lot; in 2010, four hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson). There are also a few vines in the Vine Museum of the Franz Leth Winery in the municipality of Fels, Lower Austria.
