Pinot Noir

Costly to produce, capricious, relatively low-yielding and sensitive, pinot noir has been nicknamed the "heartbreak grape" by winegrowers and winemakers who insist on producing it, as they seek to elicit from it the remarkable finesse and depth it is able to generate. In its home in Burgundy, it produces a mind-boggling range of nuances, which are highly sought by wine lovers from around the world. In the broadest terms, Pinot Noir tends to be of light to medium body with an aroma reminiscent of black cherry, raspberry or currant. Traditional red Burgundy is famous for its fleshy, 'farmyard' aromas, but changing fashions and new easier-to-grow clones have favoured a lighter, fruitier style. However, an emerging style from California and New Zealand highlights a more powerful, fruit forward and darker wine that can approach syrah in depth. Pinot noir is also often used in the production of Champagne.
