There are two competing theories on pinot noir’s beginnings 🔥 The first asserts that pinot noir originated — as all Vinifera varieties are said to have — between the Black and Caspian Seas where Turkey, Iraq, and Iran share borders 😎 From there they were eventually schlepped around Europe by the Greeks and Romans 😁 Second theory holds that pinot noir originated in Gaul, where wild vinifera grapevines can be easily domesticated. John Winthrop Haeger, in North American Pinot Noir, cites evidence that suggests “vineyards might have thrived in what is now Cote D’Or as early as at least the second century B.C.”

In Bordeaux, a château name is largely a trademark that can increase or decrease in size, as the owner purchases land. Burgundy is where a vineyard’s name is associated with a plot of land. It cannot be modified in size. The AC hierarchy places each vineyard in its own category. To make matters more complicated, each vineyard can be divided among several owners.

Pinot Noir has a sensitive response to what size crop it will produce. Many poor Pinot Noirs are an example of this. Pinot Noir is a slow-ripening variety (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir are sometimes harvested simultaneously in Burgundy). This makes it unsuitable for regions that have high temperatures. It would not be able to produce interesting flavor before the acidity levels drop. It can also rot Pinot’s thin-skinned grapes, which results in wine that is pale or tainted in many cooler regions.
