Pinot Noir is a native grape from Burgundy, traditionally "aristocratic". It is particularly complex to vinify, and very difficult to recognise at blind tastings, even by the most experienced sommeliers. Its uniqueness is that it is a grape variety that is very versatile (although more suited to cooler climates) and very sensitive to the land in which it is harvested. In Burgundy, we may have very different results just from one estate to the next!
Bourgogne Pinot Noir expresses the best from its region, of which it is the main grape variety for the production of red wines. It's also present in Champagne, blended with other varieties of grape, and grows well in Germany, Switzerland, the United States and even New Zealand. With its elegant and discrete red colour, and with its fruity aromas of currants, cherries and red berries, Pinot Noir is a great ally of good food and has its place in many pairings.
New Zealand's Pinot Noir based wines are also very famous, and for a reason! Check out Vinatis’ selection of the best Pinot Noir's from all around the world: Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir is just one of them; many more are waiting for you in our cellar!
