Mondeuse Blanche is a white grape variety found in the Savoie region of eastern France. It is not related to the red Mondeuse grape but is thought to be a parent of the widespread Syrah grape.
Only small quantities of the grape are grown in France with around 5 hectares being cultivated. It can be found in the white Vin de Savoie and in some wines from the Bugey appellation.
Mondeuse Blanche is now known to be the parent of the red Syrah grape with the other parent being the fast-disappearing red Dureza grape from the Ardeche region. Mondeuse Blanche is also known in Savoie as Molette.
