Pinot Noir Comparative Tasting Old World vs New World
May 18, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+4
Pinot Noir, the renowned grape originally from Burgundy, France, now flourishes around the world. New Zealand, Oregon, Australia and California now boast worthy credentials in the production of this finicky grape. To find your favourite, it’s worth tasting different styles originating in different parts of the world, which is what we intend to do with this tasting!
We suggest getting one bottle from the old world, Burgundy France, and one from the New World. Suggested regions below.
What we’re tasting Albert Bichot, Mercury AOC and Te Karanga Pinot Noir from Martinborough New Zealand.
Old World Appellation to try:
• Côte de Nuits Villages
• Nuits Saint Georges
New World Countries and American States to try are listed below. If you’ have access to a lot of bottles then you can try one of the suggested premium sub-regions too.
