Clone appreciated for its steady production, its agronomic characteristics and the quality of the wines produced. Good capacity for making wines with ageing potential.
Identity and availability
  • Origin : Region, department or vineyard in which the selected clone strain was identified and selected.
  • Year approved : Year when clone approval was given by the CTPS vine section.
  • Growing surface area : Surface area in ha. of propagating stock nurseries which enable to evaluate available potential. For clones with a surface area included between 0.01 and 0.10 ha, it is indicated < 0,10 ha. For clones with a very limited dissemination for which we have technical data, < 0,01 ha is indicated. For other “sparsely disseminated clones” which signifies that the clone has been recently approved or that it has not been propagated. In both cases, only the initial material is planted in the selection centers
  • Selection : Institution which carried out clone selection. For clones approved after 1999, the name of or IFV partners participating in the genetic selection of the vine variety in question are associated. (NB: CA = Chamber of Agriculture)
  • Agronomic references : Region, department or vineyard where the agronomy and technological data was gathered
  • Agronomic data
  • Fertility : This refers to the relation between the number of grape clusters and the number of buds left after pruning
  • Weight of grape clusters : Is indicated in relation to the average clone population. In order to have a more precise indication of the grape cluster weight, refer to the average weight provided in the description sheet for vine varieties
  • Size of berries : Is indicated in relation to the average clone population
  • Production level : This notion is based on fertility component, grape cluster weight and berry size
  • Vigor : The appraisal of this parameter is based on tasting comments and also on the analysis of musts at maturity or on finished wines (total polyphenols, for example)
  • Sensitivity to Botrytis : In most cases this refers to the visual assessment of grey rot attacks in terms of frequency (number of clusters affected) and the intensity (importance of damage caused on affected grape clusters). The notion of susceptibility is connected to cluster makeup and compactness
  • Technical data
  • Sugar content : Richness measured at maturity, compared to the average of clones observed under same conditions
  • Total acidity : This refers to acidity measured for a must at maturity or for finished wine, compared to the average for a group of clones observed in a given situation.
  • Aromatic intensity : This notion is based on tasting comments and concerns mainly white vine variety clones
  • Potential color : The appraisal of this parameter is based on tasting comments along with the analysis of musts at maturity or on finished wine (nuance, color intensity)
  • Tannic structure : The appraisal of this parameter is based on tasting comments and also on the analysis of musts at maturity or on finished wines (total polyphenol index, for example).
  • Oenological aptitudes : This mainly concerns tasting comments focused on defining the profile of wines produced with a particular clone
  • Further comments :

    These comments are posted below the clone data under consideration along with specific descriptive data and its sanitary status with regard to leafroll, its cycle, phenolic characteristics and its technological potential

    Graphs :

    The objective is to provide a summarized, simplified and reductive representation of the most well known and widespread clones. They are presented in scatter diagrams with sugar content, production level variables with some graphs presenting the variation percentage compared to the average of clones studied.
