The red grape variety comes from France, Synonyms are Bouiller Noir, Fouine, Plant Dame Noir and Quillard. The French ampelographer Paul gave a precise first description Truel in Montpellier, although the variety was mentioned in writing as early as 1780. The parentage is unknown. The ampelographer Guy Lavignac suspects that it is a mutation of the variety Jurançon Noir with whom she is often confused. The late-ripening vine produces light red, acid-stressed red wines with a slight bitter tone. The species threatened with extinction is in the departments of Lot-et-Garonne and in the southwest Dordogne represented. In 2010, only one hectare was shown (Statistics Kym Anderson ).
