Pinot Noir is a blue-blooded vine, a truly aristocratic variety. The finest of all red varieties, it can truly dazzle the taste buds. First described in 1375, it has always remained intimately linked with the history of Burgundy. Its grapes give birth to the true soul of Burgundy, and only here is it at its best.
Endearing nose of fruit evolving to spice. An intense, forward wine bursting with flavors; frank on the palate.
Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.
