Vineyards in the fall in Burgundy, France

Pinot Noir in the Old World and New

Our Virtual Tasting on the Heavy-Duty Topic of Pinot: For Paying Subscribers Only

2 min read

On January 22, 2022, subscribers to Opening a Bottle joined Editor-in-Chief Kevin Day for a seminar and discussion on Pinot Noir in the Old World and New. Kevin tackled how Pinot Noir has been built up by the wine industry and pop culture, which has led to numerous misconceptions about the grape and the wines it yields. He also laid out a foundation for “wine beginners” to understand Burgundy and its cru system, as well as how American winemakers differ in their approach. There was also a visual tour of the most celebrated Pinot Noir winery in the world, Burgundy’s esteemed Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

As promised, we are including some additional resources to cover aspects of Pinot Noir that we didn’t have time for. Those include these articles:
