Pinot Noir has likely been grown in Burgundy for more than 2,000 years, but producers in the New World are making iterations of the classically French varietal that are rivaling some of the most coveted wines that Burgundy has to offer. The terms “Old World” and “New World” are often discussed when tasting wine, especially when deciphering the location of the wine’s origin. The differences are derived from different wine making practices, location, climate, and the effect of the land (terrior) on the grapes and wine itself. So does this really alter the taste and style of a single varietal that much? Yes - in this class, we're exploring different producers and iterations of Pinot Noir from across the globe and figuring about what this "heart-break" grape is all about.
