Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

When grown with care and passion, Pinot Noir is a fabulous and food friendly red. We have world class "cold climate" Pinot Noir from winemakers in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Truly unique ones, too.

Swiss Pinot Noir often manages to combine red fruit and notes of autumnal woods with cool and soft tannins. It is subtler in Vaud, bolder in Valais and Geneva, in Eastern Switzerland, it beats anything Germany can produce. Don't miss the unique Swiss "Oeil the Perdrix", a rosé of free run Pinot Noir juice that is dry and complex (and doesn't feel like rosé when tasted blind).

Austrian Pinot Noir is delicious, but in Austria it does not get the attention it deserves (neither does the Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris). Yet, from the juicy Buchegger, the rich Klosterneuburg, the perfectly balanced Zull to the masterly oaked Lentsch and the lovely Pinotfrom master red wine maker Fischer, we have one impressive bottle after another.

ENJOY!

  • Burgunder Sekt Weingut Steininger

    Starting at: £24.24

    Blend of Burgundian grapes, classy sparkling
  • Pinot Noir Sekt Weingut Steininger

    Starting at: £29.35

    If you took all the bubbles out, this would be a very good Pinot Noir. As a matter of fact, they sell it as still Pinot Noir too. They just make sparkling out of some of it. From the nose, you can tell it's Pinot, but not that it's sparkling...
  • Apologia Brut Provins

    Starting at: £25.81

    A new sparkler for Alpine Wines.

Pinot Noir has many other names, some of which may offer clues as to its origin - Blauburgunder, Bourguinon, Morillon and Savagnin Noir. It probably originates in France but there are many other theories which have it coming from Egypt, Italy and Germany.

The genealogy of Pinot is hugely impressive with a wide number of well known grapes coming from it particularly through its crossings with Gouais Blanc and Savagnin (not Sauvignon which are children of this crossing).
