It must not be confused with the varieties Fer (Herrant) or Gros Verdot, despite the fact that synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate this. The variety was first mentioned in 1736 together with Gros Verdot, which is very different despite the similarity in name. According to DNA analyses, both seem to be descended from...
