Pinot noir is now used to make red wines around the world, as well as champagne, sparkling white wines such as the Italian Franciacorta, and English sparkling wines.
Typically, Pinot Noir is dry, light- to medium-bodied, with bright acidity, silky tannins and alcohol that ranges between 12–15%. The best Pinot Noir taste has complex flavors that include cherry, raspberry, mushroom and forest floor, plus vanilla and baking spice when aged in French oak.To identify Pinot Noir, we must first examine its shoots, which have internodes with red stripes. Its young leaves are green or yellow, and the tips of its young shoots are moderately to densely covered in flat-lying hairs. Its adult leaves are dark to very dark green and whole, with three or five lobes.
Pinot Noir is essentially produced using the red winemaking process of fermentation and barreling (yes, it is almost always oaked - ideally in French Oak barrels). It may surprise some readers to discover that Pinot Noir is one of the three grapes used in making Champagne.
Pinot Noir means "black pine cone" in French, named for its dark color and compact, conical shape. It isn't known whether Pinot Noir was imported into France or developed in situ from the wild vinifera grapes that grew in Europe before Roman settlement, but it's agreed that Pinot is among the oldest of French grapes.
As the birthplace of Pinot Noir, France is rightfully the most recognized Pinot Noir country in the world. United States: Pinot Noir is grown throughout the U.S., but the best Pinot Noir wines are grown and produced in Sonoma Valley, particularly the Russian River Valley region, and Napa Valley in California.
