Tressot Noir - grape and leaf

At Tressot Noir is a very old variety, because it was first mentioned under the name Treceaux in 1394 and then 1562 in the Burgundian Département Yonne. The medium maturing vine is prone to real mildew and is difficult to graft, which has justified their decline. It produces dark-colored, tannin, alcohol and acid-rich red wines. The almost extinct species is in the Yonne (northwestern Burgundy ) only grown on less than one hectare (Kym Anderson ).
