Discover the grape variety: Robin noir
Discovered in the 1870s by Mr. Robin, who lived in the Drôme at the time in Lapeyrouse-Mornay, this ancient grape variety is believed to have originated in the north of Isère. It can also be found in Switzerland. According to Thierry Lacombe (I.N.R.A./Montpellier), it is the result of a natural intraspecific crossing between Tressot Noir and Mondeuse Blanche. It should be noted in passing that, on the one hand, it has exactly the same parents as the mondeuse noire, that on the other hand, it is the mother of the diolinoir and, finally, is related to the servanin. Robin noir is not widely propagated today because it is not well known, although it is listed in the Official Catalogue of Wine Grape Varieties, list A1.
