Country: France, Burgundy, Cote De Nuits
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Five villages at the opposite ends of the Cote de Nuits are classed as Cote de Nuits Villages: to the north Fixin, which also has 1er cru vineyards, and Brochon, where some of the vineyards are classified as Gevrey - Chambertin, to the south Premeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien and Corgoloin, at the very end of the Cote de Nuits. Almost exclusively red, these wines are pleasantly balanced, being complementary to the full-bodied wines of the north and the suppler wines of the south.

Tasting Notes: Rich aromas of black Berry fruit on the nose. Fleshy and very perfumed on the palate, with the marked character of all Cote de Nuits wines.

Food Pairing: Grilled or lightly sauced meat, game birds.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
