A Flight of Pinot Noir
$21.99 – $29.99
Pair with gruyere de comte
Pinot Noir is a thin skinned and finicky black grape that produces some of the most elegant wines in the world. It is the backbone and structure of a great champagne and it makes one of the most complex and finessed wines in the world. It does not play well with others so watch out for some of those new world countries who try to blend.
In terms of food pairings it is magical as its high acidity allows it to pair with anything from my Christmas turkey to a rich meat dish like Beef Bourguignon.
