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.

Malivoire Wine Company Pinot Noir 2006
V.Q.A., Beamsville Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Canada
According to winemaker Shiraz Mottiar: “Chardonnay takes the most effort. Pinot Noir takes the most thought.” This is an extremely thoughtful Pinot Noir, with rich layers of satin texture and aromas of bright, tart cherries. Medium-bodied and fleeting in a haunting way. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $32.00 Score: 90/100

Domaine Du Prieure Pinot Noir 2007
A.C., Hautes Côte De Beaune, Burgundy, France
Vintages Wine Panel: From the hills just above this famed Côte de Beaune house come some great wines offering eye-popping values, such as this 100% Pinot Noir beauty. Brimming with aromas and flavors of black cherry, beetroot and freshly tilled earth, this shows classic Burgundy character in a very approachable style. Enjoy it. My note: A terrific, vibrant Pinot Noir for the money! Burgundy doesn’t come much more value-priced than this for such tasty quality. Ripe, tart cherries dance across the palate with a silky texture and medium body. A beetroot-infused finish that’s pleasantly long. I love this mouth-watering style of wine. Pinot Noir food pairings: beef stew, grilled root veggie dishes. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $18.95 Score: 90/100
