Pinot noir (French), also called Spätburgunder (German), is a blue grape variety with a compact truss and thin-skinned grapes. It is therefore generally a grape that is difficult to cultivate, as it is susceptible to rot and fungal diseases.
Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero or Blauburgunder) also grows in Italy, which also produces fine wines. In Germany, the grape (Spätburgunder) produces beautiful wines; the most beautiful red wines in the country. Furthermore, Pinot Noir wine is also made in Austria of very good quality. Over the years, California has probably had the most Pinot Noir vines in the world. It does especially well in the somewhat foggy, cool parts around San Francisco. The grape is also on the rise in South America, Chile.

What does a Pinot Noir taste like?

When Pinot Noir wines are drunk young, there are usually aromas of strawberries, raspberries and violets on the nose. When you let wine from Pinot Noir grapes age a bit, the aromas go more towards ripe strawberries and plums. Pinot Noirs often have a 'earthy' feel, but in general they are quite light, delicate wines with little tannin. Pinot Noir comes from Burgundy, where red wines with Burgundy mentioned are usually made from Pinot Noir.
