The red grape variety is a new breed between Gamay x Reichensteiner. Synonyms are C 41 and Gamay x Reichensteiner C 41. The crossing was made in 1970 by André Jaquinet at the Swiss Federal Research Institute Changins near Nyon (Vaud, Switzerland). The plant variety protection was granted in 2009. The two new varieties Gamaret and Garanoir were created from the same parents. The early-ripening vine is resistant to botrytis, but very sensitive to heat and drought. It produces colourful red wines with soft tannins and aromas of black fruits. The variety is cultivated in Switzerland in the canton of Vaud. However, no stocks were recorded in 2016 (statistics Kym Anderson).
