Grape Varieties - Courbu Blanc

Courbu Blanc
You might like to try...

Another tangled web here. Courbu Blanc originated in the south of France, but a number of varieties here go by the name Courbu. And it appears in both French and Spanish Basque country, in the latter by the name of Hondarribi Zuri. To add a further dash of mystery, there appear to be two other grapes going by the name Hondarribi Zuri in Basque Spain: Crouchen and an odd US hybrid by the name of Noah. Courbu Blanc is unrelated to Courbu Noir and Petit Courbu.
