It is a mutation of Pinot Noir; it is therefore one of the Pinot varieties (see there in detail). It got its name (Meunier = Müller) because the underside of the hairy leaves and the tips of the shoots appear as if they were dusted with flour. Two somatic mutations of Pinot Meunier are Velvet Red (but is considered a mutation of Pinot Noir, especially in Germany) and Pinot Meunier Dwarf.
