The Bourboulenc Grape

The Bourboulenc grape is a white wine grape variety, which makes an appearances as a blending grape (put with other grapes to form the wine) in the South of France, making wines in Rhone, Provence and Languedoc. This grape is most commonly used in the La Clape appellation of the latter, where the law states that white wine from there must contain a minimum of 40%.

The Bourboulenc Grape retains a high acidity after being blended with other grapes, and holds tones of citrus fruits.
