*Grappu is a forgotten grape variety, because of it’s relative high acidity and low alcohol but with the climate change it will be a great aromatic variety for the futur Benoît is one of the only vinters who uses this variety as a mono cépage, normaly it’s blended with merlot to give ist some more freshness
