Origin France

Tressot 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.[1] 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.

In the literature it is often confused with the grape variety Trousseau,[2] which is also known as Bastardo
