Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black, because of the pine and cone shape of dark colour fruits. Pinot Noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler climate, but the France Burgundy region is its home.
So much to learn about Pinot Noir; but for now I will tell you that I normally enjoy a great bottle of dark red. I recently had a bottle of Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir Louis Latour 2015. My oh my did I enjoy it!
It was dangerously easy to drink with or without food; this was perfectly paired with my pork chops and with the company of Mike, Krish and Christopher made it even more delicious and soothing while chilling in the West Indies.
I tasted all the different flavors exploding in my mouth! My taste buds were happy as different notes of sour cherry, raspberry, licorice and mocha dance in my mouth and released smooth tannins and very nice freshness on the finish.
The only thing that is better than a bottle of wine, is to share it with the people you love and cherish. Love the wine you are with, because all you need is LOVE and a bottle of wine.
