The red grape variety is a new cross between Grenache Noir Garnacha Tinta) x Jurançon Noir. The crossing took place in 1958 in France by Paul Truel Paul on behalf of the INRA in Montpellier. By the way, the Chenanson variety was also created with the same parents. The medium ripening vine is susceptible to Botrytis. It yields neutral, light-coloured red wines. The variety is cultivated in the south of France in smallest amounts in the three départements Aude, Hérault, and Vaucluse. In 2016, only three hectares of vines were reported (Kym Anderson Kym statistics).
