Corot Noir Grape Details
Cornell University officially named and released three new wine grapes during the 31st annual American Society for Enology and Viticulture/Eastern Section Conference and Symposium, held July 9-11, 2006 in Rochester, N.Y. 'Corot noir', a mid- to late-season red wine grape, is a complex interspecific hybrid resulting from a cross made in 1970 between Seyve Villard 18-307 and 'Steuben'. "'Corot noir' is a distinct improvement in the red wine varietal options available to cold climate grape growers," said Reisch. "Wines are free of the hybrid aromas typical of many other red hybrid grapes, and can be used for varietal wine production or for blending. The distinctive red wine has a deep red color and attractive berry and cherry fruit aromas."
