Pinot Noir Wine

Beloved by wine lovers and winemakers around the world, Pinot Noir nevertheless remains one of the most difficult grapes to grown well, with thin skins, susceptibility to disease and low yields. It doesn’t tolerate heat and much prefers cooler clay and limestone rich soils where it produces more concentrated styles. Many have tried to cultivate this grumpy varietal, and many have failed, yet when the stars align, this grape is simply…sublime.

As French as it comes, Pinot Noir’s heartland is Burgundy, where it single-handedly produces some of the world’s most expensive wines. Other areas to watch out for are Oregon, certain parts of the Napa Valley in California, New Zealand, Chile and the southern limits of Australia. Let’s not forget its’ starring role in Champagne where it provides richness, structure and of course the delicate pink colour in rosé champagne. Taste-wise, Pinot Noir will almost certainly make you think of soft red fruits – raspberry, cherry and strawberry, but also expect savoury, earthy tones and herbaceous notes, depending on its age and origin.

  • Hattingley Valley Classic Cuvee 2013, Hampshire

    1 review(s)

    Britain's best value bubbles? This English sparkling wine is seriously good value, especially since it's the vintage cuvée. Hampshire vies with Champagne here in very stately style. Outstanding fizz that, at this price, doesn't demand a special occasion to open it; how about this Friday? Read More.

    Rude Wines have loads of lovely stuff - the trouble is the Cottonworth Sparkling Rose from Hampshire is so delicious they have to prise the bottle from my hands to force me to try other stuff!Oz Clarke, The Three Wine Men

    Wow - very fruity! Incredible strawberry and cherry fruit, the like of which I’ve never tasted - still less in an English wine! This is thanks to the use of Pinot Précoce, apparently. So bright and ripe. Hard to say if it’s typically English, but I do love its boldness. 17/20 Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com Read More.
