Les vins des coteaux alpins \ Grape varieties
This is a very old grape variety that used to grow in the Grésivaudan region and more generally in the Isere Valley from Grenoble to Tullins under the full name of Sérénèze de Voreppe. It could alos be found in Savoie and in the northern part of the Drôme. It has long been confused – and still today - with Ciréné de Romans with which it shares a large number of synonyms such as Sérenèze. It would come from a natural intraspecific cross between Gouais blanc and Chatus.
The Sérénèze gives a light wine, fruity, a beautiful clear ruby color, with an often high acidity. It is a good quality wine with a pleasant scent reached in the first year or if not in the second one; drink immediately.
