Jacquère is a variety of white grape found primarily in the Savoy wine region of France.[1] It is a high-yielding vine variety which is used to produce lightly scented, rather neutral dry white wine, such as Vin de Savoie. Jacquère is the grape used in Apremont wines and is the usual wine paired with cheese fondue (a dish from the same region). It is also found in Bugey wines.

Furthermore, Jacquère has been grown in some Condrieu vineyards, but it is officially not allowed to be used in Condrieu Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée wine.[1]

After increased plantings in the 1980s, it has remained at a level of about 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) in France since the 1990s.[1]

Gouais Blanc has been secured as one of its parents, but the other is unknown. Jacquère is thought to be of French origin.[2]
