The red grape variety comes from France. Synonyms alphabetically grouped by country are Cannut de Lauzun, Chalosse Noire, Dame Noire, Dégoûtant, Enrageat Noir, Folle Noire, Folle Rouge, Gamay Goutot, Giranson, Gouni, Jurançon Rouge, Luxuriant, Piquepout Rouge, Plant Quillat, Quillard, Quillard Rouge, Quillat(France); Fola Belcha(Spain); Vidiella(Uruguay). It must not be confused with the Calitor Noir or Fuella Nera varieties, even if synonyms or morphological similarities appear to indicate this. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2009, it is a presumably natural cross between Folle Blanche x Cot (Malbec). It was a crossbreeding partner in the three new varieties Chenanson, Ganson and Segalin. The variety was first mentioned in 1839 in the south-western department of Lot-et-Garonne.
