Top Pinot Noir Wine

My wine reviews include Pinot Noir wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These Pinot Noir wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great Pinot Noir wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of Pinot Noir wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Inniskillin Wines Select Vineyards Pinot Noir 2010
Vqa, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada
A silky, medium-bodied red with aromas of tart cherries and field raspberries. Mouth-watering and very versatile with food, from planked salmon to roast chicken. A satisfying long finish. Pinot Noir food pairings: thyme and mushroom soup; pulled pork sandwich; rosemary grilled lamb leg; cherry compote with a bloomy rind cheese like camembert or brie; salt roasted beets with fresh goat cheese/chevre.. Alcohol: 13.6%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2012‐2016  Price: $22.95 Score: 90/100

Le Clos Jordanne Talon Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008
V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Vinemount Ridge, Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: Dominated by plum, raspberry, spring flowers and beetroot/earth aromas. Dry, tannic and tight with good, youthful fruit waiting patiently to come to the front. Will reward 3-5+ years in a cellar, or enjoy tonight, decanted. My note: Canada’s leader in Pinot Noir: classic Old World lines and balance with New World fruit and power. Floods the senses with ripe cherry fruit and raspberries, some spice on the finish for intrigue. Medium-bodied and silky, seductive. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $40.00 Score: 90/100

Antonin Rodet Givry Pinot Noir 2007
A.C., Burgundy, France
Vintages Wine Panel: A young Pinot Noir designed for early enjoyment. Look for aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry and a hint of cinnamon spice. Dry and crisp with a pretty spicy fruit core. This is a medium-bodied, long-finishing wine. It will also improve for 2-4 years in a cellar. My note: I’m coming to trust this producer for my personal drinking pleasure. I love Pinot Noir, but don’t like Burgundy prices. This estate produces wonderfully flavorful wines at a terrific price. Redolent of tart cherries and dried herbs. Mouth-watering, medium-bodied and silky-seductive. Pinot Noir food pairings: veal tenderloin or filet mignon, salmon, pate, roast chicken, turkey. Alcohol: 13%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $21.95 Score: 90/100
