The red variety comes from France, Synonyms are Bouiller Noir, Fouine, Plant Dame Noir and Quillard. An exact first description provided the French Ampelograph Paul Truel in Montpellier although the variety was already mentioned in writing in 1780. The descent (parenthood) is unknown. The ampelographer Guy Lavignac suspects that it is a mutation of the variety Jurançon Noir with which it is often confused. The late-ripening vine produces bright red, acid red wines with a slight bitterness. The endangered species is in the southwest in the departments of Lot-et-Garonne and Dordogne represented. In 2010, only one hectare was reported (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
