or Tressot Noir
is a variety of dark-skinned wine grape
. Tressot has historically been grown in Burgundy
but it is now almost extinct. Some small plantations still remain in the Chablis
district of Burgundy.
The grape has been identified as a cross between Duras
and Petit Verdot
. Duras is a traditional French grape variety currently found only in the Tarn valley
northeast of Toulouse. Petit Verdot is one of the classic grapes of Bordeaux
, although it probably originated further south, so the current distribution of the parents suggests the Bastardo was born somewhere in South Western France, if not on the banks of the Tarn itself.
In the literature it is often confused with the grape variety Trousseau
