Ensedune Petit Verdot
First, ensedune Petit Verdot has a vineyard located in the edge of the Mediterranean sea. Then, it is characterized by one of the warmest and dryest climates of France located at the west of Béziers.
Proud of a thousand-year-old tradition, the Ensérune winegrowers were keen to develop their vineyards by acclimatizing grape varieties from various horizons. Most of all, created by teamwork, the Ensédune range is the product of generations of collaboration by winegrowers and presents unusual grape varieties for monovarietal wines.
Ensedune Petit Verdot is a 100 % Petit Verdot grape variety.
A Bordeaux grape variety recommended in the Gironde region for its resistance to powdery mildew. It is the last to be harvested (late-harvesting with a very long growth cycle, hence its name “petit vert”, meaning “little green”).
It needs water and heat, and is not very drought-resistant.
The wine loves deep soils (access to water) with lots of pebbles (for the nocturnal storage of daytime heat). Indeed, it is a difficult grape to train, it requires lots of work when green.
At first a very colourful wine, peppery, spicy and fragrant, a connoisseur’s wine. Then a fruity (raspberry, wild strawberry, citrus fruits) and floral (licorice, peony, juniper berry) notes.
Enjoy this wine with grilled red meats or with a cheeseboard. Importantly, serve between 18°C and 20°C.
