Pinot Noir – the grape and the wine.
Pinot Noir (classic tasting notes: cherries, raspberries and smoke).
The premier red-wine grape of the Burgundy region of France. Get to know it first from Burgundy. Then try a few New World regions that do well with it, for example Pinot Noir from Oregon.
Food Pairing: serve with pan fried pork chops, steamed green beans topped with butter-browned slivered almonds, and spaetzle (traditional German egg noodles).
