Some of the greatest wines in the world are made from the Pinot Noir grape. It’s the main grape in the spicy, rich, complex French red Bourgognes (Burgundy). It is a very difficult grape to grow consistently, but when done correctly, and growing conditions are good, the wines are subtly spectacular. Flavors and aromas include bright cherry, strawberry and spices with quite often a lovely, silky, sometimes earthy quality. It’s also an important ingredient in making French Champagnes and American Sparkling Wines.
