Plantscher, also known as Bordeaux Blanc or Gros Bourgogne, is a very rare grape despite having an impressive and much admired offspring in Hungarian Furmint. This has led to the suggestion that it may originate from Hungary rather than France as the synonyms may suggest.

Ben says (May 2018): Often, ultra-rare grapes can be a dissapointment in terms of aroma and flavour despite being of interest in other ways. On the nose this is a very fresh, citric wine, with lemon and lime dominating. In the mouth these fruits continue to express themselves and the well-balanced acidity encourages this.
