  Humagne blanc

 
Its must is almost as rich in sugar as the Chasselas. It does not require a very high sugar content because its typical character is best expressed in a dry wine. When young, it is a little reminiscent of the Chasselas with which it could be confused. Its acidity nevertheless makes it possible to preserve it for a number of years after which it acquires a rustic character with a touch of resin flavour. This is not a white version of the Humagne rouge. The clerk Amadeus de Reyna in a sales contract in 1313 first documents its presence in the Valais.
