Did You Know?... About Chambourcin

Chambourcin is a red hybrid grape from France, created in the 1960s. Despite the fact that it is a hearty and productive vine, in France it can only be used in French table wines. It can be found, if rarely, in other New World regions like Australia and the East Coast of America. It tends to create a fairly balanced wine, with some sweetness typical of a hybrid, but with an aromatic and dry backbone.
