Food Pairing Notes
Salmon; mushroom, asparagus, and prosciutto pasta, roasted duck with cranberry chutney, strawberry, pecan, feta and mixed greens salad.
Other Notes
Black-berried and characterized by the layer of white hairs on the underside of the leaves that look like a dusting of flour, hence the name meunier, meaning 'miller' in French. Mutation of Pinot noir. Early budding and ripening than Pinot noir and therefore less prone to winter frosts, more reliably productive. Makes a more obviously fruity, earlier maturing wine than Pinot noir. Burgundy origin.
