History of Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a "light red" wine, first planted by the Gauls before the Roman invasion. By 150BC there were vineyards in France of this fine grape. The Pinot Noir grape is the main grape used in much of Burgundy. It is used for Red Sancerre wine.

It was only recently, in the early 1990s, that it began to be grown in quantity in California, Oregon, Australia and New Zealand. Pinot Noir grows best in cool climates. It is known as an extremely difficult grape to grow and to make into wine.

A Pinot Noir's color can be any of a range of colors - from cherry red to puple-red and even brown as the wine ages. Typical flavors include earth, leather, vanilla (from the oak), and jam ... the fruity flavors of the jam often taste like raspberry, strawberry, and plum.

Pinot Noirs go well with pasta with red sauce, or lighter beef dishes. Also, any local game you might have, or even goose would do well.
