Pinot Noir

The only Alsace red

Alsace Pinot Noir is the region’s only red wine. It has great character, both full-bodied and full of fruit. Its colour can vary from deep, dark red to subtle garnet glints. The nose offers distinctive aromas of black fruit and berries such as blackberries, blackcurrants and cherries, with occasional surprising notes of leather, even of vanilla and prune.

On the palate, Alsace red wines reveal the full power of the terroir, enhancing the bouquet of fruit aromas. Well-balanced with great length, these wines are given structure by their ample, silky tannins.

A distinctive variety

Pinot Noir is an ancient variety that goes back to the Middle-Ages. It went through a period of decline during which the wines, diluted and served too cold, had little personality; the variety regained its prestige thanks to committed winegrowers who produced more assertive, full-bodied wines. Today, 10% of the Alsace wine-growing area is planted to Pinot Noir.

Alsace reds are well placed to make a name for themselves through their great quality!

A NEW IDENTITY enhanced by the Alsace terroir

Pinot Noir was originally a grape variety from Burgundy. It produces light, fruity, or more robust red Alsace wines. It is also used to craft certain Crémants d’Alsace, such as Rosé Brut and Blanc de Noir, as well as some Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (Protected Designation of Origin) Alsace wines.

A match with character

With its fleshy and full-bodied structure, Alsace Pinot Noir is a perfect match for good cuts of red meat and game. It goes extremely well with prime rib of beef or duck breast. And feel free to serve it with stews or boeuf bourguignon, too.

As for Rosé Crémant d'Alsace, it is a classic aperitif and is also perfect for red fruit desserts like raspberry millefeuille, red berry coulis or strawberry macaroons.
