The red grape variety (also Pully 4-42) is a new variety between Rouge de Diolly(Robin Noir) x Pinot Noir. It was crossed in 1970 by André Jaquinet at the Changins Research Institute in the Swiss canton of Vaud. The early to medium-ripening, high-yielding vine is susceptible to trickling and small berries, but resistant to botrytis. It produces colourful, tannin-rich red wines with blackberry aromas. The variety is mainly grown in the canton of Valais (where it is used in the Dôle brand wine), but also in Vaud and Ticino, and in 2010 it covered 112 hectares of vineyards.
