grape variety was a foundation grape for Armagnac in the past but
has lost ground to the earlier maturing Ugni Blanc in that region.
By itself, Folle Blanche makes wines that are tart and thin. It
is currently most used in the Muscadet region of France along the
Loire Valley and is the only variety in Gros-plant wine. Folle Blanche
is grown in small plantings in California, Spain and Uruguay.
