Louisiana (burgunder)

Introduced here by Mr. F. MUENCH, who received it from Mr. THEARD, of

Louisiana, where it has been cultivated for some time. Some claim that

it is the grape which makes the famous white Burgundy wine of Europe. I

am inclined to think it is also a native, grown from foreign seed, like

the foregoing, which it closely resembles in foliage and wood; but

will, I think, make a wine of still higher quality, perhaps the most

delicate white wine we yet have. It can hardly be distinguished from

the Rulander in appearance, but has a more sprightly flavor. Ripens at

the same time.
