Cultivated by the Gauls before the Roman invasion, Pinot Noir has always been right at home in Burgundy. It has since been planted in Alsace, Germany and even in the coolest parts of Spain or in the U.S. state of Oregon. Temperamental, frost and disease-sensitive and an early ripener, it is like an exceptionally gifted but difficult child. However, its short growing season is a benefit in northern regions where the warm weather ends quickly. In Burgundy, the climate is ideal for Pinot Noir and it produces spectacular wines that are complex, well-balanced and rich in aromas.
