The Pinot Noir Pairing showcases the distinction between an Old World French Red Burgundy alongside a New World California Pinot Noir.
This Pairing demonstrates the regional differences of one of the world’s most popular red wine grapes by comparing and contrasting Pinot Noir from two benchmark growing regions side-by-side.
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: French Red Burgundy is characteristic of fruits like dried strawberries, sour cherries, cranberries and rhubarb, coupled with undertones of earthiness, smoke and roasted mushrooms.
Wine 2: California Pinot Noir offers riper fruit and softer acidity. You will find notes of sweet red cherries, juicy plums, pomegranate, roses, cola and caramel.
