Jacquere is a white grape variety found mainly in the Savoie area of eastern France. It is usually blended with other, bolder varieties such as Aligote or Roussette (Altesse) to produce long-lasting white wines.
In the Savoie this grape is also known as Cugnette, Coufechien, Martin-cot and Rodin among others. The tight bunches of thick-skinned grapes love limestone soil and are very productive in those conditions. It is a late-maturing variety with low sugar levels thus making wonderful dry white wines.
