100% Pinot Noir.

Pinot Noir is a "cross dresser." It's a red wine that thinks it's a white because it's crisp and soft enough to go with more "white-wine dishes" than most red wines. This is why Pinot Noir may be the ultimate food wine. Here are its classic food matches:

  • Leaner meats (veal, chicken, turkey, rabbit, any game bird, filets of beef or pork, and a well-drained duck)
  • Smoked, wood-roasted, braised or sausage meats (with the use of beef, lamb and pork)
  • Earthy flavors (truffles, wild mushrooms, mustards, peppercorns, coriander and horseradish)
  • Resin-like or scented green herbs (rosemary, thyme, tarragon, oregano, summer and winter savory, chervil, mints and basils)
  • Aromatic sweet spices (clove, cinnamon, mace, allspice and nutmeg)
  • Sweet vegetables (tomatoes, beets, carrots, caramelized onions and bell peppers)
  • Autumnal fruits (figs, plums, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, currants, and black and dried cherries)
  • Natural stocks and sauces rounded with butter
  • Slow-cooking processes (braises and pot-at-feu)
  • Mild or creamy cheeses (Brie, Camembert, herbed crèmes, cheddars, Havarti and jacks)
