Clairette is a light-colored grape variety found mainly in southern France. It is traditionally used in the production of fresh, sparkling wines and light, easy-drinking still wines in the Rhone Valley and Languedoc regions. Clairette de Die and Coteaux de Die are the most well-known Clairette wines, and the grape is also used in small amounts in other regions such as Italy, South Africa and Lebanon. The grape is not easy to grow, as it tends to oxidize quickly and has low acidity and high alcohol, but with careful vinification, it can produce light and fresh wines with flavors of apple, citrus and stonefruit. The grape is also blended with other varieties such as Ugni Blanc, Terret Blanc and Grenache Blanc to give wines with higher acidity.
