One of the classic four claret varieties, originating from France but now grown throughout the world, this grape vine really is well worth growing and should not be treated just as a novelty.

It is unlikely that the fruit will ripen fully before the onset of winter if grown outdoors, exceptin the warmest parts of the UK and so we recommend growing under protection for best results.

Dark purple-black fruits produce a rich red juice that can be sweetened for drinking, or fermented to make fine red table wines with that characteristic blackcurrant overtone. The grapes themselves are fairly small in size whilst the vine has a good resistance to disease.

  • Originally from France.
  • Late-season fruit ripening (probably too late for most of the UK outdoors).
  • Winter wood ripening is good, so could be grown outdoors, though to guarantee fruit ripening we recommend protected growing (greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory).
  • Can be trained using either the cane replacement method or spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
  • Fruit contains seeds.
