French term for black, which is very often included in the name as a colour designation of red wine varieties; for example Pinot Noir. See also under blanc de noirs and colour.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
