Négret Castrais

The red grape variety (also Folle Noire) originates from France. It should not be confused with the varieties Fuella Nera or Négrette (both with the synonym Folle Noire), despite the synonyms or morphological similarities that seem to indicate this. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it comes from a presumably natural cross between Mauzac Blanc x Morrastel (Graciano). The variety used to be cultivated in south-western France, but is no longer important today. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
