Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir has a bit of a reputation as being a stubborn old grape to grow. It is one grape that really mirrors where it has been grown, favouring cooler evenings and slow, steady growth over the season. No doubt its greatest expression comes from the Burgundy vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, and Vosne-Romanée. With these great names, often come great prices so it's no wonder Pinot Noir lovers have sought out Pinot Noir from the US, New Zealand, Australia and Germany.
