It must not be confused with the varieties Béclan, Blauburger, Blaufränkisch, Brun Fourca, Gamay (Dôle), Gouget Noir, Persan, Pineau d'Aunis, Tressot Noir or Trousseau No ir, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological or name similarities. It is most likely the original Pinot variety with many varieties or clones and mutations. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2000, there is a parent-offspring relationship between Pinot (see there in detail) and Traminer (Savagnin Blanc). Specifically, Traminer is assumed to be the descendant of Pinot, although the reverse relationship cannot be ruled out. The old synonym Schwarzer Traminer (Black Traminer) points to this relationship, although at the time when this name was created there was of course no concrete knowledge about it. Somatic mutations are Pinot Meunier (Schwarzriesling)...
