Wine writer Oz Clarke once wrote that ‘putting a stylistic harness on Pinot Noir is as tricky as wrestling an eel’ and we couldn’t agree more. While we raise a glass to this grape variety on Pinot Noir Day next Tuesday, we don’t need an excuse to crack open a bottle. With the stylistic variations of this variety, any day is Pinot Noir Day, as far as our team is concerned!

About the Wines
Crémant de Bourgogne, Domaine Bersan NV
This Crémant from Chablis’ Domaine Bersan is the perfect summer sparkling, subtle notes of citrus and gala apple. The palate is lively, with a gentle sweetness, followed by a beautifully refreshing finish. Softer than Champagne and with a lovely elegance throughout.
Le Moulin Blanc Blanc de Noirs, Jérémie Mourat 2017
Le Moulin Blanc de Pinot Noir is from Jérémie Mourat in the Loire. This is a still white wine – unusual, indeed! Elegant and floral on the nose, it is richly structured with a beautiful freshness and minerality to the finish.
Sancerre Rosé Le Grand Moulin, Domaine Pierre Girault 2019
The Sancerre Rosé Le Grand Moulin from Domaine Pierre Girault in the Loire is a salmon-coloured rosé with delicate notes of rose, strawberry and redcurrant on the nose and pleasant savoury undertones on the palate.
Pinot Noir, Bodega Luigi Bosca 2018
The Pinot Noir from Luigi Bosca, one of Mendoza’s – if not Argentina’s – most admired winemaking families, is clean and fresh with succulent redcurrant and strawberry fruits. Hand harvested with a subtle touch of oak, this dashing red is an elegant combination with soft cheeses or white pizzas. A lovely, mellow way to end the evening.
BOB Short for Kate Pinot Noir, Ben Glover 2019
Marlborough, New Zealand
Bob Short for Kate by Marlborough’s talented Ben Glover pays homage to his sister, nicknamed ‘Bob Short for Kate’ (some of you may well get the Black Adder reference!) A bright, brambly hue with aromas of wild berries, cherries, raspberry and a hint of green spice. These notes overflow onto the palate with a burst of fruit and elegance to the finish.
Pinot Noir, Gnarly Head 2018
The Gnarly Head Pinot Noir from California’s up and coming Lodi region touts voluptuous aromas of black cherry, plum jam, roasted coffee beans and spice followed by a rich flavour combination of raspberry, red currant and ripe plum with mild hints of vanilla on the palate. Silky tannins and bright fruit make this wine a perfect pair for mushrooms or grilled meats.
