Confusion of Tressot and Trousseau[edit]

As far as I can tell, this article has mixed up Tressot (Noir) and Trousseau (Noir). It's the later variety that is known under the synonym Bastardo and and Tresseau, but it's the former, almost-extinct Burgundian variety that's a cross of Duras and Petit Verdot, according to VIVC and OCW. It seems that a Tressot or Tressot Noir article needs to be created, and this article cleaned up. I would also advocate moving it to Trousseau (grape) or Trousseau Noir, because I think you need a very compelling reason to list a variety under another main name than VIVC does.

I think I have now managed to fix the Tressot-Trousseau confusion by adding a Tressot article and moving some statements out of this article. The question remaining is if this article should be called Bastardo or Trousseau, as in VIVC. Tomas e (talk) 19:34, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
I noticed that Wine Grapes, the standard reference on grape varieties published in 2012, lists this grape as Trousseau rather than Bastardo, and lists its origin as Jura, albeit with a long history of cultivation on the Iberian peninsula. Since I've seen no justification for Bastardo as the primary name in the more than four years since I wrote the comments above, I'll move the article to Trousseau.
