According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Achladi x unknown variety. Nothing is known about a possible connection to the red variety Olivette Noire. It was a crossing partner in the new variety Ribol. The vine is suitable for wine presses and table grape. It is cultivated in small quantities in the département of Vaucluse. In 2016, two hectares of vines were designated (Kym Anderson).
