Wheat varieties

Has anyone here come across the French wheat varieties known as Touselle or Touzelle? (I did search first.) Louis XI, gravely ill, thought that only bread made from Touzelle could restore him to health.


I ask because a friend has written about the rediscovery of these varieties, and wondered if anyone had access to the article L'homme qui plantait des bl├ęs by Isabelle FAURE in Nature & Progres No. 59 (Sep/Oct 2006).


Thanks


Jeremy
