Whether from California, Oregon, Burgundy or other wine growing regions of the world, there is no question that nowadays, Pinot Noir rules!
Merlot gave way in the turn (the Sideways movie pushed it in the grave), Cabernet is galloping, Sauvignon Blanc is gaining ground, Chardonnay is puttering down the stretch but Pinot Noir is winning by several lengths!
Why the craze?
Pinot Noir is reputed to be the most romantic of wines but also the most temperamental of grape. Andre Tchelistcheff declared that “God made Cabernet but the devil made Pinot Noir!”
The wine tends to have a light garnet color with aromas of black or red cherry, cassis and raspberry. Whereas Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy will break the bank, we are able to find very affordable and delicious labels from California and Oregon, trust your favorite wine store! At Mille Fleurs we like to pair Pinot Noir with our Duck Confit, chef martin incomparable Wiener-Schnitzel, all veal dishes and our Wild Salmon recipes.
