Petit Verdot

Is one of the Bordeaux’s classic black grape varieties, no longer planted in any great  quantity but enjoying  a small revival in some quality-conscious  vineyard. The vine ripe even later than Cabernet Sauvignon and is equal resistant to rot . It shares Cabernet Sauvignon ‘ s thick skins and also capable of yielding concentrated, tannic Wines rich in colour.  When  it ripens  fully , age worthy, sometimes rather spicy Wines can make a valuable contribution.

  • Lentil soup with smoked ham hock
