(a.k.a Folle Noire on the Cote d ‘Azur). Minor grape grown in the Cahors area east of Bordeaux in France. Used to create local blend, along with Malbec and Merlot, that is a well-regarded robust red wine with pronounced aroma. Alone, the grape yields a full, hard and dark-red wine. It is also grown in Provence where it is used in a blend, along with Cinsault and Grenache, to produce one of the favored red wines.
