The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Boutelion Noir, Fouiral, Moulas, Psalmodi Noir and Sigoyer. Despite seemingly indicating synonyms, it should not be confused with the independent varieties Aramon Noir (Gros Bouteillan) or Calitor Noir. In the VIVC catalogue, Bouteillan Noir is mentioned as a synonym for the Quagliano variety. The variety was first mentioned in 1715 in the department of Vaucluse (Provence). Although the variety has a morphological similarity with the white variety Colombaud (with synonym Bouteillan Blanc), it is not a colour mutation. The late-ripening vine tends to trickle and is very susceptible to botrytis and downy mildew. It yields rather weakly colored, light red wines for blending. The variety, which used to be widespread in the south of France, now occupies only a few hectares in Provence. However, no stock was reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).
