It should not be confused with the varieties Calitor Noir or Fuella Nera, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2009, it is probably a natural cross between Folle Blanche x Cot (Malbec). It was a crossing partner of the three new varieties Chenanson, Ganson and Segalin. The variety was first mentioned in 1839 in the Lot-et-Garonne département.
