Pinot Noir is red varietal grown mostly on cool climates. This grape is mainly associated with Burgundy region of France. Also used to make Champagne. Light to medium body with high acidity makes it possible to age well.
Sutter Home Pinot Noir offers a fresh take on Burgundy’s most celebrated varietal. To preserve the wine’s pretty violet aromas and delicate, bright flavors, winemakers cold-ferment the juice in stainless steel tanks, and briefly age the wine in French and American oak to impart a silky-smooth texture and light body.
This Champagne is crafted from the finest pinot noir grapes selected from only grand cru classified villages. It draws most of its character from the delicate, natural spice of the crus from northern Montagne de Reims (Verzy and Verzenay) and the well balanced structure of those from southern Montagne de Reims, from Bouzy, Aÿ and Ambonnay. The 2008 Grand Cru Blanc de Noirs is a precise Champagne, and a great companion to food, notably delicate, stripped-back dishes.
