Braucol have originated in Spanish Basque Country. It more or less followed the way of the St Jacques de Compostelle pilgrims (on the way back). It belongs to the big family of Carmenets, which includes Cabernets.
The grapes do indeed resist quite well against mould, and the rather tannic wines they produce tend to age well.
Wines made using braucol are usually quite intense in colour and quite tannic; depending on the age of the wine, the aromas range from capsicum to blackcurrant.
Saint Andre from Sarrabelle domain is composed of 100% Braucol: it is a fruity and forwardly aromatic French wine produced in Gaillac region, where the ocean meets the sea (the climate reflects both influences - to get more info: https://www.guildsomm.com/public_content/features/articles/b/charles_neal/posts/where-the-ocean-meets-the-sea-wines-of-fronton-gaillac-marcillac-and-cahors).
