Tressot Noir

The red grape variety originates from France. Synonyms are Ancien Tresseau, Bon Tressot, Bourguignon, Bourguignon Noir, Morillon Noir, Nairien, Noirien, Petit Nerre, Plant de Thoisey, Resseau, Treceaux, Tresseau, Tresseau Ordinaire, Tressiot, Tressiot Enrage, Tressot, Petit Verrot, Véro, Vérot, Vérrot and Vérrot de Coulanges. It must not be confused with the Gascon, Négrette, Pinot Noir, Poulsard or Trousseau No ir varieties, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a parent of the Duras variety (previously it was considered a direct descendant of this variety). It is a parent variety of Genouillet (with Gouais Blanc) and Robin Noir (with Mondeuse Blanche). Somatic mutations are the light-berry varieties Tressot Blanc and Tressot Panaché.
