On Friday 17th August, come and celebrate Pinot Noir Day with us during an all-Pinot-Noir tasting event!

Being a delicate and thin-skinned grape variety, Pinot Noir requires hard work and meticulousness. Today, it can be found in many wine regions all around the world but it is, without a doubt, in Burgundy that it finds its best and most diverse expressions. From Côte de Beaune, through Côte de Nuits, down to Côte Chalonnaise, Pinot Noir is sometimes light, sometimes powerful, often with red and black fruit aromas, sometimes floral also, with notes of roasted coffee, tobacco, mushroom, damp undergrowth when you are patient enough to forget about it for a while in your cellar, and always subtle. it is also the key grape variety of the great reds of Oregon, USA, where Maison Joseph Drouhin has owned some vineyards for over 30 years.
