Petit Verdot Wine

Petit Verdot used to be a key red grape in many classic Bordeaux blends. An early budding and late ripening grape which can suffer from frost damage, it is often now used as a condiment in the main Bordeaux blend to add colour, tannin and a lovely spiciness. Due to its late ripening it has become popular with winemakers in the warmer New World, notably in Australia and California, where it ripens much more reliably than in France. Petit Verdot wines often have aromas of pencil shavings, minerals and smoke and mature Petit Verdot wines can taste deliciously of dark fruits and spice. Game, sausages and red meat pair well with a Petit Verdot wine.
