The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Noirien de la Grande Race, Pinot Crepey and Pinot Noir Batard. The parentage is unknown. Pinot Crepet is also a synonym of the variety Pinot Violet (a somatic mutation of the variety Pinot Noir); it is possibly identical to this variety. No stocks were reported under this name in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
