Petit Verdot is a red grape that is the least known and least grown of the Bordeaux red grape varietals, but is very well known as a blending grape.


This varietal is incredibly generous with floral fragrant aromas early on that carry on into its middle life with lavender, rosewater, violet, anise and white blossom notes.
