Grapes (cultivars Grenache and Syrah) were grown in France and irrigated or exposed to water stress (natural precipitation) during 1994-95. Gas exchange, stomatal sensitivity, chlorophyll fluorescence, water relations, leaf area and fruit characteristics were determined. Maximum daily photosynthesis and maximum daily stomatal conductance were more sensitive to water deficit in Grenache than in Syrah. Syrah was capable of maintaining higher rates of photochemistry at lower soil and leaf water potentials than Grenache. Leaf C balance was better in Syrah than in Grenache. Syrah produced fruits with higher contents of sugars, phenolic and anthocyanins than Grenache.
