Pinot noir, a wine from Alsace France Vineyards

Pinot noir is a grape, and also an Alsatian wine.

In Alsace it is generally used to make rosé wines. However, it is also used to make genuine red wines usually called Pinot noir rouge, which are similar in character to red Burgundy and Beaujolais wines but are consumed chilled. Prominent examples are Rouge de Barr and Rouge d’Ottrott. Pinot noir rouge is the only red wine produced in Alsace.
