Whether thanks to the great red wines of Burgundy or the sparkling wines of Champagne, the reputation of Pinot Noir is measured on an international scale. Pinot Noir wines hold one of the first places among the most appreciated in the world for their finesse, their delicacy and their complex and subtle aromas.
A historic grape variety from Burgundy, Pinot Noir has conquered new territories and is now grown in many countries. The selection and development of a surprisingly large variety of clones makes it possible to obtain the best wines where the terroirs (subsoil, soil, climate) are best suited to them.
The book of pinot noir, a true illustrated encyclopedia of more than 150 color photos, presents a complete review of the aspects specific to this grape variety: its history, from the Gallo-Roman period to the present day its place in botanical classification, its ampelographic and cultural characteristics, clonal selection work and the genetic particularities of the grape variety which make it a model for the study of the vine genome , its location and its geographical development in France and around the world.
