Phenology
Bud burst: 9 days after Chasselas.
Grape maturity: mid-season, 3 weeks after Chasselas.
Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production
Given the fact this grape variety has female flowers, risks of coulure are very high and the yields extremely limited.
Susceptibility to diseases and pests
Thanks to its very loose bunches, Camaralet is usually verry little sensitive to grey rot, except when it is over-ripe.
Technological potentiality
This variety is renowned for the quality of its very fine wines (alcoholic, honeyed and ample) and their aromatic typicity (cinnamon, pepper, fennel).
Clonal selection in France
The two certified Camaralet clones carry the numbers 1023 and 1024. A conservatory of ten or so clones was planted in the Jurançon wine-growing region (French department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques).
