Petit Verdot is a black grape variety from the Bordeaux vineyard. It owes its name to its small clusters of tightly packed grapes and its late ripening which keeps it green for a long time. Little planted, it remains delicate to cultivate and has been the subject of renewed interest in recent decades.
Although it can be used in small quantities in the region's blends, particularly in the Médoc, as a complement to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Carménère, it nevertheless contributes to the elaboration of Classified Growths.
Rarer, some winegrowers offer cuvées with larger quantities of Petit Verdot or even as a single grape variety (Haut-Médoc and Bordeaux Supérieur). It provides a quality, colourful and tannic wine to be reserved for copious and refined dishes.
