The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Aramone, Aramonen, Aramon Noire, Aramon Pignat, Aramon Pigne, Aramon Saint Joseph, Aramont, Arramant, Eramoul, Eromoul, Gros Bouteillan, Pisse-Vin, Plant Riche, Rabalaïré, Raballaïré, Ramonen, Réballaïré, Revalaire, Revellaire, Ugni Noir (France); Amor-Não-Me-Deixes (Portugal); Aramon Chernyi, Aramon Crni, Burchard's Prince, Burchardt's Prince, Burkhard, Kék Aramon. Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the Bouteillan Noir or Juan García varieties. There is no relationship with Trebbiano Toscano (Ugni Blanc), which the synonym Ugni Noir might suggest. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2021, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Ouliven x Gouais Blanc. In the Hérault area, there are the light berry mutations Aramon Blanc and Aramon Gris. Aramon Noir was a crossing partner in the new varieties Alicante Ganzin, Bouschet Gros, Clairette Dorée Ganzin, Flot Rouge, Gramon, Grand Noir, Monerac and Petit Bouschet.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
