Neapolitan Frontignan (Muscat Noir de Naples)

Bunches, small and well set. Berries, small and round. Skin, very thick, adhering closely to the flesh, black, and covered with thin bloom. Flesh, firm, richly and briskly flavoured.

A very nice little Black Frontignan, but too small for general cultivation.

ŒIllade (Boudalès; Prunelas; Ulliade; Ulliade Noir Musqué; Ulliade Noir Precoce)

Bunches, medium sized, and with long stalks. Berries, large, oval, uniform in size, and dangling from long stalks.

Skin, thin, of a dark purplish black colour, and covered with bloom. Flesh, firm and crackling, juicy, sweet, and of a rich vinous flavour.

The vine is a very abundant bearer, and ripens its fruit in a cool vinery, but to have it in perfection it requires the same treatment as the Frontignans. It is a delicious grape.

Ottonel Frontignan (Muscat Ottonel)

Bunches, small and well set. Berries, small. Skin, very thick, greenish yellow, becoming yellow as it ripens. Flesh, tender, rather dry, and not very plentiful nor very juicy, and with a powerful Muscat flavour.

A very early Frontignan grape, ripening a fortnight before Royal Muscadine, but not a desirable variety to grow.

Panse Musquée. See Muscat of Alexandria.

Paxse Jaune (Grosse Panse)

When the bunches are well set they are large and handsome, long, tapering, and shouldered. Berries, very large, oblong, and like those of Muscat of Alexandria in appearance. Skin, tough and membranous, adhering to the flesh, of an amber colour, and covered with a thin grey bloom. Flesh, firm, sweet, but not richly flavoured.

It is very rarely that this grape sets its bunches perfectly. The condition in which it is usually met with is very few bunches on the vine, and these so badly set that there are only a few fully developed berries on each bunch. The leaves die pale brown.

Pedro Ximenes

A noted Spanish grape, extensively grown in Andalusia, and which furnishes the rich liqueur wine called Pedro Ximenes.
