Why is Pinot Noir the heartbreak grape?

This variety is famously temperamental, reacting sensitively to its surroundings and showing variability across different vintages. Its unpredictable nature contributes to its challenging, yet intriguing reputation.

What makes Pinot Noir unique?

Pinot Noir's delicate thin skins and minimal phenolic compounds result in wines that are generally light in color, medium-bodied, and low in tannins. These wines can experience inconsistent aging periods and 'dumb phases,' where their flavors become muted. Typically, young Pinot Noir wines exhibit red fruit aromas like cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

What is the scientific name for Pinot Noir grapes?

Vitis vinifera 'Pinot Noir' (O/B)
