Colombard

Colombard

Overall Impression
Colombard was used extensively in production of Cognac but is now used mainly as a reliable base for large scale commercial blends primarily out of California. Colombard generally produces wines with low acidity, neutral aromas, and a crisp finish which makes it an excellent blending partner for more aromatic and acidic varieties such as Chenin Blanc.
History
Presumably the offspring of Gouais Blanc and Chenin Blanc.
