Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the most widely planted red grape varieties. The home of Pinot Noir is Burgundy, and their quality has seen the variety planted to the north, in Champagne and Alsace, and worldwide, such as in America and New Zealand.

Transforming from summery flavours to creamy flavours as the wine ages, Burgundian Pinot Noir products tend to be of greater impact than their New World counterparts, who however are more consistent in flavour.

Ageing and Flavours

In sparkling wine, Pinot Noir provides dark fruit depth and palate weight. It is the only grape used in sparkling wine labelled Blanc de Noir (white of red) of long lifespan, which is very biscuity and moussy. In table wine, the flavour can range from simple strawberry and cherry fruit to rich game meats, herbs, black berry, mushroom, forest floor leaves and truffle. As a general rule, Pinot Noir table wines do not age well and are best within a few years of vintage. However some great Pinot Noirs, particularly from high quality Burgundy vineyards, may last for twenty or more years.
