PINOT NOIR

One of the world's most planted grape varieties

Pinot Noir 

Also called Morillon, Noirien or Spätburger. Pinot Noir is a  red grape variety native to Burgundy, it is associated with the prestigious Côte d'Or appellations  (Clos de Vougeot, Côte de Nuits), but it adapts very well to other cool climates beyond the borders of France. This makes it one of the most planted grape varieties in the world. Often vinified alone, it produces red wine and more rarely rose wine. Blended, it produces crémants and contributes to the prestige of Champagne wines. With its complexity, it is one of the noble grape varieties, giving wines of great aromatic finesse. In a word, Pinot Noir is lightness.

SHALL WE TASTE?
In the galss

Lively, light and not very tannic. Of great finesseVast aromatic palette: black cherry and red fruit notes, sometimes spicy or cocoa when vinified in barrel. Delicate texture and notes of undergrowth at ripeness.

Rare, the rose wines made of Pinot Noir are often pale, lively and fresh. They are appreciated for their lightness. They can be found in Burgundy, Alsace and Centre-Loire (Sancerre) even if these regions do not favour the production of rose. 

Pinot Noir brings power and body to sparkling wines. It gives white or rose sparkling wines of great finesse. 

Champagne: Vinified in white (thanks to direct pressing), Pinot Noir harmoniously complements Chardonnay (freshness, elegance) and Pinot Meunier (suppleness and perfumes) in the blending of champagne.

MORE INFORMATION

Vinified as a red wine, lovers of light wines appreciate it from its youth as a single variety for its characteristic black cherry (Morello cherry) aromas. With time, this bouquet evolves towards notes of brandy (kirsch), leather and game. It is used in the making of Burgundy Grands Crus such as those of the Romanée conti, chambertin, corton, pommard... A region where the grape variety is almost exclusive to red wines and where every nuance of the terroir can be appreciated.

Not very productive but very qualitative, this grape variety offers great wines in the northern areas (cool climate), whereas it is less successful in the hot areas where only the maturity is combined with elegance towards more patinated tannins.

In Champagne, it represents 40% of the grape variety. Blended with Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, it is used in the vinification of this famous French sparkling wine. Without this last grape variety, the champagne is white of blacks. This is why it brings this vinous side to champagne.
