Pinot Noir: A Fine Wine
One of the finest wines is the Pinot Noir from the Burgundy Region of France. Of course it goes without saying that this wine is produced in many parts of the world now, but the original Pinot Noir comes from Burgundy in France and the vintages made from the burgundy wines are rather expensive.
The burgundy based Pinot Noir is one of the most complex red wines and the grape producing this wine is extremely difficult to grow.The Pinot Noir grape thrives in cooler climates. Cool climates, with ocean breezes, early morning mist and fog, all affect the Pinot Noir grape and affect the taste of the final bottled product.
Possible because of the fact these grapes are easily affected by the climate and thrive in cold weather; well grown Pinot Noir grapes create a wine that is lighter in color as compared to the normal full-body red wine. And it may be possible that it is this light color and delicate flavor and texture that attract the Pinot Noir fans to this fine wine.The light and delicate wine has a very soft texture that tastes almost the same as a piece of silk on the body.
Depending upon where the Pinot Noir grape was grown, it can also have many flavors including earthy, spicy, herbal, floral, cherry and even light tannin flavors. red wine suits all people from the regular wine drinker to the new wine drinker as well and is a perfect accompaniment to any meal. The kind of wine it is, the Pinot Noir can also be paired easily with any kind of food but generally goes best with Seafood, Beef, Fowl, vegetarian dishes, mushrooms and more.
Pinot Noirs are best served in the large balloon like burgundy glasses. These glasses allow for a lot of swirling around and the aroma that spreads amplifies the taste of this beautiful Wine.
