Chambourcin

Chambourcin is a vigorous, disease-resistant French-American hybrid developed in the Loire Valley of France. Noted for evocative herbal aromas and crisp acidity, Chambourcin is typically made in a dry style into full-flavored wines that showcase a wide variety of berries. Although often a varietal wine, it can also be used as a blending grape to add youth, color and fruit flavors to a more ageable wine. It pairs well with a wide variety of foods, from hamburgers and veal to tuna, swordfish, mahi-mahi and flounder.
