Tardif de Bourgogne

Translated into English, Tardif de Bourgogne means Late Burgundy. Similar to Precoce de Burgnogne (Early Burgundy), it is an aroma hop grown in small quantities in the Alsace region of France.

It is said to feature a mild European-style aroma and is thought to have come about via the clonal selection of an old French land race. Unfortunately, Tardif de Bourgogne is somewhat difficult to find on the open market.
