Enfariné Noir

The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Enfariné du Jura, Gaillard, Gôt Noir, Gouais Noir and Grison. A somatic mutation with reddish berry colour is Enfariné Gris. There are morphological similarities with the Gueuche No ir variety. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it originates from a presumably natural cross Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) x unknown variety. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). The late-maturing, high-yielding vine is generally resistant to vine diseases. It yields simple red wines for quick enjoyment. Some producers are trying to revive it through new plantings. It is cultivated in tiny quantities in the two départements of Jura and Doubs. In 2016, 0.1 hectares of vines were designated (Kym Anderson).
