Plantet


Plantet

Plantet is a red wine grape that is a hybrid grape created by French hybridist Albert Seibel. The grape is grown primarily in the Loire Valley around Anjou and is known for the high yields that the vine can produce. The vine is generally reliable and disease resistant, producing well even after suffering through a spring frost, however the berries tend to be difficult to crush which leads the grape to some disfavor among winemakers. The exact parentage of this hybrid is unknown but the two most popular theories are the crosses of two Seibel grapes, Seibel 867 x Seibel 2524, and the Seibel 4461 crossed with Berlandieri-Jacquez.
