Origin France

Muscat Ottonel or Muskat-Ottonel (in Germany) is a white wine grape that is a member of the Muscat family of Vitis vinifera. It is most notable for its use in dessert wines from Austria, Croatia and Serbia as well as dry wines from Alsace and Hungary. In Alsace,[1] the varietal designation Muscat d'Alsace is allowed for the varieties Muscat Ottonel, Muscat blanc à petit grains and Muscat rose à petit grains blended in any combination -or not- (but not for other members of the Muscat family), and blends between these are not allowed for most Alsace Grands Crus.

First cultivated in Alsace by the Loire grower Moreau-Robert in 1852, Muscat Ottonel is believed to be a cross of Chasselas with Muscat de Saumur (which was originally given as "Muscat d'Eisenstadt").[2][3]


Muscat Ottonel is known under the following synonyms:[3] Chasselas Saint Fiacre, Mirisavka, Mirislavka, Misket Ottonel, Mozzonel, Muscadel Ottonel, Muscat de Craciunel Tirnave, Muscat Ottone, Muscat Ottonel Weiss, Muskat Otonel, Muskat Ottonel, Ottonel, Ottonel Frontignan, Ottonel Muscotally, Ottonel Muskotály, Tamiioasa Ottonel.
