This appears to me to be identical to what I grow as La Biche from ARE, and identified to actually be Madame de Sombreuil. Do you see a Tea/Noisette characteristics or perhaps Bourbon-Tea?

I have Mlle Blanche Laffitte, La Biche and Mlle de Sombreuil. The former is quite different than the latter two (small to medium size blooms in clusters, similar to Sappho descendants Mme Alfred de Rougemont, Boule de Neige etc.). La Biche in Europe (climber) is quite different than Mlle de Sombreuil ex USA.
