Pinot Noir is a thin-skinned grape variety that is native to Burgundy, France. Pinot Noir wines are light to medium in body and can range in style from light and fruity to complex with aging capability. Pinot Noir is the most romanticized red wine in the world, and pairs well with salmon or other fatty fish, roasted chicken, or pasta dishes.
