Comments Bourboulenc is an ancient white wine grape that has been grown in southern France (Provence) for centuries. Some believe it has its origins in Greece (Asprokondoura). Bouboulenc is a late budding variety. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape grape is a possible source for floral character, freshness and acid to blend with wines from white Rhône varieties that tend toward high sugars, such as Viognier, Roussanne, and Grenache blanc.
