Pinot Noir - A Classic European Wine

Pinot Noir is one of the oldest European wine varieties, and has been known since the 14th century. This technical grape variety is not meant for consumption, but rather is grown to produce red, rosé, and white wines that are popular and loved all over the world. Pinot Noir is associated with rich feasts of high society and bohemians, and can be considered the king of red wines.

The Pinot Noir grape variety comes from the province of Burgundy in France, but is also popular in several other countries. This variety of berries has a very capricious nature, requiring a lot of attention, and is sensitive to weather conditions and soil composition. The grapes do not tolerate rain and strong winds, and prefer a cold climate, mainly growing in the north. Susceptible to fungus, mold, and rot, the yield of Pinot Noir grapes is usually poor.
  • There are over 50 "clones" of the Pinot Noir grape, but the most popular ones are:
    • Pinot Blanc
    • Gr
    • Lesser
    • Red Velvet
    • French

The production of Pinot Noir is a complex process, requiring a lot of labor and attention to detail. The grape variety is classified as a low-extracting grape, meaning that the wine cannot have a saturated color and will be almost transparent. Producers use different methods, such as aging in oak barrels, delestage, and infusion on the mash, to give color to the beverage. Pinot Noir grape drinks are usually dry but can be semi-sweet or sweet.

Pinot Noir wines have a very rich and multifaceted flavor that changes depending on the time of aging. The flavor of Pinot Noir is unique and complex, with a subtle, elegant taste and a slight acidity. The wine is dominated by notes of red berries, violets, black currants, plums, autumn woods, wet earth, and, in warm countries, sweetish jammy flavors. Opening each new bottle offers a unique experience, with new nuances and flavors to discover.

Pinot Noir wine pairs well with dense and heavy dishes, and is a perfect complement to cheeses with noble mold, meat and poultry, fish, pasta, risotto, and mushroom dishes combined with cream. The bottle should be opened half an hour or an hour before serving and should be served at a temperature of 14 to 17 degrees in a special glass with a wide bowl in the shape of a cylinder.

Pinot Noir is one of the most expensive wines, but can be purchased in almost any retail liquor store or online. The cost of the product will depend on the period of aging, the technology of production, the region where the grapes are grown, the vintage, and the brand. When buying, it is worth considering not the most budget-friendly options, as the production process requires a lot of effort and time.
