Pinot Noir

One of the noblest red wine grapes. Pinot noir is difficult to grow, rarely blended, with no roughness. Food pairings: excellent with grilled salmon, chicken, lamb and Japanese dishes (notably sushi rolls). Districts: makes the great reds of Burgundy (from Bourgogne, France), and good wines from Austria, California, Oregon, and New Zealand. Typical taste in varietal wine: very unlike Cabernet Sauvignon. The structure is delicate and fresh. The tannins are very soft; this is related to the low level of polyphenols. The aromatics are very fruity (cherry, strawberry, plum), often with notes of tea-leaf, damp earth, or worn leather. Yet pinot noir is very transparent to the place where it is grown. The staggering range of wines produced makes it pointless to define which personality is the best expression of the variety.

  1. Villages De France Pinot Noir

    Villages De France Pinot Noir

    $11.94

    Pinot Noir translates as 'black pine' in French, and is named as such due to the extremely inky color of the fruits, which hang in bunches the shape of a pine cone. Wineries often struggle with Pinot Noir vines, as more than most red wine grape varietals, they fail in hot temperatures and are rather susceptible to various diseases which can be disastrous when hoping for a late harvest. Thanks to new technologies and methods for avoiding such problems, however, the Pinot Noir grape varietal has spread across the world to almost every major wine producing country. Why? Quite simply because this is considered to be one of the finest grape varietals one can cultivate, due to the fact that it can be used to produce a wide range of excellent wines full of interesting, fresh and fascinating flavors Their thin skins result in a fairly light-bodied wine, and the juices carry beautiful notes of summer fruits, currants and berries, and many, many more.

  9. Joseph Drouhin Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

    Joseph Drouhin Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

    $26.94

    Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come. Learn More

    2014 Meiomi Monterey County Pinot Noir

    $27.94

    Deep, rich garnet color. The wine opens up with aromas of ripe berries, fresh cranberry, candy apple and malted vanilla, some of which carries through to the palate. There’s a hint of Granny Smith apple on first sip that beautifully balances out the rich cream soda and cherry cola notes. It is an extremely layered wine, both in structure and flavor, with a slight earthiness and sweet oak on the finish.

  11. PHILIPPE LECLERC Bourgogne Rouge Bons Batons

    PHILIPPE LECLERC Bourgogne Rouge Bons Batons

    $34.94

    The Leclerc family have been vingerons for over a hundred years, with vineyards passed down from father to son for generations with holdings in Gevrey Chambertin and Chambolle Musigny Village level and Premier Crus. Leclerc wines are sturdy and solid, and this wine, from the great 2010 vintage, is very much in the Leclerc style but in this case perhaps showing a little Chambolle perfume and elegance on the nose along with a hint of Gevrey influence in the background. It is medium ruby in color, a lovely nose of red fruits, with fine darker cherry and spice on the palate, with a good tannin structure and nicely integrated, very subtle oak hints. This is a wine you could serve now with decanting, but it will also reward the patient with 2-3 years of bottle age. At Leclerc special care is taken at every step of the grape growing and wine making process to crft beautiful, expressive wines from their vineyards. Replanting is done vine by vine to maintine vine age of over 30 years average, harvest is by hand with care taken to assure grapes are intact right up until they go into the vats. A cool maceration of about 15 days is followed by 15 days of fermentation, treading the cap by foot 3 times per day. Wines are settled before aging in oak barrels with 100% new oak for the 1er Crus and 30-50% for the Village and Bourgogne. Wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. The Bourgogne Bons Batons, I amLeclerc pretty sure, comes mostly if not entirely from a small parcel of vines located just outside of Chambolle Musigny, near Gilly Les Citeaux. Learn More

    2012 Domaine Mouton Givry 1er Cru Clos Jus

    $59.99

    Domaine Mouton's aptly-named 'Clos Jus' ('jus' means 'juice') is the Mouton wine we go to first. Always ripe and juicy, ready to drink relatively early. Minerality is the key here, from a vineyard with different soil make-up to the rest of the appellation. Dark fruit, earth notes, delicate structure fleshed out to fullness. We appreciate the finesse in the winemaking, an unstinting perfectionism that has been communicated across a generation. The self-effacing Moutons would be the last to admit it, but for us their wines are nearly always perfect.

  22. 2011 Drouhin Gevery Chambertin

    2011 Drouhin Gevery Chambertin

    $75.94

    Category: Red Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir Region: France » Burgundy » Cote de Nuits Producer: Joseph Drouhin Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste. Learn More
