Known at the ‘heartbreak grape’ Pinot Noir is very difficult to grow but it is definitely worth the effort. Pinot Noir at its best is silky, deceptively powerful and elegantly subtle. Pinot Noir is the grape French Burgundy is made with. French Burgundy is consistently the most expensive wines in the world.
Pinot Noir is a great wine for every cellar as it’s a great cross-over wine for food pairing. It will pair well with beef but because Pinot Noir wines are not super heavy they will pair well with pork and heavier fish like tuna and mahi mahi.
