Les vins des coteaux alpins \ Grape varieties
It is a typical southern variety. It has long been cultivated in Adissan (Hérault), where it was used to produce the appellation Clairette d'Adissan, now known as Clairette du Languedoc. Clairette blanche is vinified alone for appellation Clairette du Languedoc, Clairette de Bellegarde and Coteaux de Die, and associated with Muscat with small white grains for the Clairette de Die.
It is also part of the vine appellations Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes de Provence, Cassis, Bandol, Bellet, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Les Baux de Provence, Palette and Ventoux.
The Clairette grape produces a very alcoholic wine, fresh, usually with little bouquet and little acidity. It should be drunk within a year or it "maderizes" fairly quickly taking a yellow to brown yellow color, associated with some bitterness.
