Petit Verdot is one of the five key red varieties of Bordeaux, providing much of the tannin, colour and weight to this region’s famous blend. However, the name Petit Verdot means 'little green one' in French, as it can struggle to ripen until late in the growing season. This can mean that many of the berries fail to turn purple and are left green at harvest.
A must-try for lovers of rich, tannic wines.
