Variety Details - Aragnan Blanc

Description:

Aragnan blanc (also spelled as Araignan blanc) is a white French wine grape variety found primarily in southeastern France where it is a permitted grape variety in the white wines of the Palette Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) near Provence. The French ampelographer Pierre Galet speculated that the variety may have originated from the Vaucluse area near the Rhone. Galet further speculated that it could be related (or even a white colored mutation) of the Oeillade variety which was historically grown as a table grape in the Rhone and itself likely related to Cinsaut.
