Borgogna Grandi Firme (3): parliamo di rossi

Discussions over Pinot Noir are not that much different than those for Chardonnay, although perhaps a little more amplified. It is not that some good Pinot Noir is not produced outside Burgundy, there are some excellent ones from Alto Adige and Oregon, but in this French region they seem to be a cut above, especially in certain areas and in the hands of inspired producers.

Once again we kick off with a selection of the greatest wines without any pretense to be all-inclusive or definitive, otherwise this article would be very long indeed. The first part looks at various areas, from Chambolle Musigny to Gevrey Chambertin, with little excursions to Morey St. Denis. The second part, divided into two installments, will focus on Vosne Romanée, which is considered by many wine lovers to be the cradle of Pinot Noir. Here again the choice of wines is arbitrary but we are convinced you will not be disappointed.
