Chambourcin – G-R-E-A-T Missouri Table Wine
Chambourcin is a French hybrid that grows well in the hot Missouri summers. It produces a rich red wine that is not too heavy and very versatile. The hardiness of the grape is evident by large, long clusters of deep purple grapes that hang beautifully on the vine. The wine has depth without the complexity of a Norton grape. The result is a moderately tannic, cherry-plum scented wine that goes down easily with a nice finish.
