LaBelle Petit Verdot
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

What we love about LaBelle Winery located in Amherst, New Hampshire is that Winemaker Amy LaBelle, is crafting delectable, less well-known wines, like her LaBelle Winery Petit Verdot. This bold, red wine is richly succulent and redolent with black fruit, floral, violet, and tobacco notes. It’s gorgeous to drink on its own, and pairs well with grilled steaks, bold food, and dark chocolate. We paired LaBelle Winery Petit Verdot with Luxury Experience – Grilled Chicken with "PV" Barbecue Sauce. We not only drank the wine, we also added some Petit Verdot to our homemade barbecue sauce to bring out the flavors of the wine and complement the food, and it was a perfect match. Cheers and Bon Appetit!

Technical and Bottle Notes: "Petit Verdot is a variety of red wine grape, principally used in classic Bordeaux blends. As a young grape, its aromas are likened to banana or pencil shavings. When ripens, it presents deep tannin structure, bold color, and rich leather/violet tones."

Pairing Bottle Notes: "Pair with grilled beef and dark chocolate."

Tasting Notes: The color is a deep, dark purple color. On the nose it entices with dark fruit, floral and violet, tobacco, and leather notes with bold flavors on the palate. With this intensely delicious and bold red wine, we opted to pair it with grilled chicken with homemade barbecue sauce with a touch of LaBelle Winery Petit Verdot in the sauce to round out the flavors. The Petit Verdot held its own and was a complement to the rich bold barbecue sauce. We also paired the wine with spicy Asian food and that, too, was an excellent pairing.

Luxury Experience was "In the kitchen and behind the bar®" creating an incredibly special handcrafted culinary recipe to tempt your palate and inspire your own creations.
