Folle Blanche (foal BLONCH)

Once, but no longer, a leading grape in Cognac and Armagnac. Today used mostly in the western Loire to produce the extremely tart, thin Gros Plant. Also known as Mune Mahatsa in Spain’s Basque region, it is one of the varieties used to make the tart dry white wine Txakoli.
