Grape Varieties - Aubun

Aubun

Aubun is a later-ripening variety grown mostly in the Rhône Valley. During the destruction brought about by the vine louse phylloxera in the 19th century, Aubun was found to have some resistance to its effects. Aubun is very similar to Counoise (one of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape varieties) in the vineyard and, indeeed, Counoise is a synonym of Aubun. But Counoise is considered a more noble grape than Aubun, making better wines. This was one of the original vines that were transported to Australia with James Busby.
