The red grape variety comes from France. Synonyms are Marvaison, Mouenc, Mourvedoum, Mourvedoun, Mourveson, Mourvesoum, Mourvezon and Négrette. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Paugayen x Aubun. However, this is based on only 20 DNA markers (see molecular genetics). It should not be confused with the varieties Négret Castrais, Négrette or Négrette de Nice because of apparent synonyms or morphological similarities. In 2010, three hectares of vineyards were designated in the Var (Provence) area.
