Rolle is a white wine grape that is planted extensively in the area around Nice in France and is used in the production of some very smart white wines in the Bellet appellation which is in the city of Nice in France. It is the same as, or very similar to, the grape the Italians call Vermentino and the extensively planted Vermentinu in Corsica. There are plantings throughout Provence and even into Languedoc now.
Henri Milan uses Rolle as one of the five grape varieties in his complex Le Grand Blanc.
