List of grape varieties

It was distributed from 1852 by Jean Moreau-Robert, who was also based in Angers. The parent varieties are Gutedel and Ingram's Muscat . For a long time, the Gutedel and Muscat précoce de Saumur grape varieties were considered cross-breeding partners.

Ampelographic varietal characteristics

  • The shoot tip is open. It is hairy spiderweb to slightly woolly and red-brown in color. The intense red, shiny young leaves are hairless.
  • The small to medium-sized leaves are three- or five-lobed and deeply indented. The stalk bay is lyre-shaped to closed. The blade is bluntly serrated.
  • The cylindrical grape is small to medium-sized, sometimes winged on one side and with loose berries. The round berries are medium-sized and yellow-green in color, and when the berries are fully ripe they appear brown-spotted on the sun-side. The berries have a thick skin and a slight note of nutmeg on the taste.

Maturation: approx. 5 to 6 days after the Gutedel and is therefore considered to ripen early in an international comparison.


The variety is susceptible to powdery mildew , downy mildew and gray mold rot . Since the nutmeg Ottonel tends to trickle heavily, the yields are highly fluctuating and extremely uncertain.


The wine is greenish-yellow in color and has an intense, fine and spicy nutmeg bouquet. It is mild, usually low in alcohol and extract. The nutmeg Ottonel can develop pronounced, very fine citrus aromas in high grade levels. The variety prefers fertile, strong soils with a good water supply and sheltered, sunny locations.
