Why Pinot Meunier is weird (but wonderful)

Pinot Meunier is an unusual grape variety. Technically, of course, it is not a variety at all. It is a clone of the Pinot grape variety, along with Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. This family of four ‘varieties’ are the result of some very visual mutations to Pinot Noir, the ancestral variety, and the mutation that has caused Pinot Meunier is perhaps the most curious of all.

The Joys of Serendipity

Bottles of wine don’t usually carry a sell-by date, though supermarket staples may come with advice to drink in the next six to 12 months (in actual fact they’re likely to be drunk in the next six to 12 hours). When it comes to grand Bordeaux, vintage Port and so on, writers such as Robert Parker and Michael Broadbent give a window of anticipated maturity. Treat all such advice with a hefty pinch of salt. No-one has more than a very rough idea how wines will age, and often quite humble and unexpected bottles will turn out to have astonishing ageing potential.

Pinot noir: an endemic or a flexible variety?

Pinot noir: an endemic or a flexible variety?

Pinot noir has its historical roots in Burgundy and is generally considered as an endemic vine variety which means that its adaptation is very specific to this environment and that its wines are the most expressive in the same particular situations. Now, Pinot noir has become an international variety because growers rely on its exceptional œnological potential and reputation to reproduce something excellent under their own conditions, and also because the general style of the wines is original and dominated by ‘finesse’ which is a new trend on the international wine market. In that context, it is interesting to evaluate the ability Pinot noir has to adapt, either as a vine variety interacting in a first time with the climate which is the entrance door to the terroir,, or as a wine in terms of ‘typicity’ and specific elements revealed by sensory analysis.

To Avoid Tariffs, Winemakers Are Producing Stronger Wines

Tom Gearing noticed a curious occurrence as he evaluated wine after wine during virtual tastings this summer: all of the alcohol by volumes were coming in higher than typical.

Wine grape varieties: where in the world are they?

We have all become aware of the changes that have been occurring within viticulture over the past few years. Grape-growing has a long tradition in many regions, often relatively unchanged over extended periods of time. However, this is now changing rapidly, in response to an obviously altered climate this century. This topic should provide the impetus for a few blog posts.

Will This Be 2020’s Most Expensive Wine?

This December wine lovers will have an extraordinary opportunity to purchase a selection of large format wines from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti’s 1985 vintage—some of the world’s rarest wines from what is considered to be one of the 20th century’s greatest vintages. The collection, auctioned by Geneva-based Baghera/wines auction house, is estimated to garner close to $2.1 million dollars and will feature a total of 24 large-format bottles (12 jeroboams (3 liters) and 12 methuselahs (6 liters). Michael Ganne and Julie Carpentier, founders of Baghera/wines sourced the wines from one of Italy’s most treasured fine dining restaurants—Enoteca Pinchiorri, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant based in Florence.

Judging Wine Quality

Judging Wine Quality

There is no faking it. As professionals we are judged by how well we do it. It separates the novice from the professional, and it’s the unwritten--even unspoken--goal of any wine training. What is this mysterious coin of the realm? Simple: judging wine quality.

“Fruit Bombs” are Misnamed"

“Fruit Bombs” are Misnamed"

It is common to associate ripeness with warm climates. But there is more nuance to this relationship between heat and ripeness than is commonly assumed. One thing I’ve noticed, when I periodically delve into old world wines, is that while warm regions seem to require alcohol at 14% or above to get their grapes ripe, cooler regions, and some winemakers in California who pick early, get ripe flavors with much less alcohol. (By ripe flavors, I don’t mean raisin notes. I mean rich, clear, focused fruit flavors.)
