Sensitivity to diseases and pests
Danlas B is very susceptible to dead arm disease, downy and powdery mildew. On the other hand, it is not very prone to grey rot.
Technological potential
Danlas B grape clusters are large, moderately compact with a long and pigmented stalk. Homogeneous clusters, easy to pick and package and the berries are moderate to large in size. The skin is thick and the pulp relatively juicy, soft with a neutral flavor. Well suited for transportation and conservation. When vinified,  Danlas B produces ordinary and not very aromatic wines.
