Pinot Noir (French)

Some of the greatest wines in the world come from "Burgundy" France, but because most of us can't afford some of these giants of renown doesn't mean that we can't taste Pinot Noir from "under the radar" Bourgogne Rouge, JuraSancerre, and Alsace which all produce French Pinot Noir wines we can afford (for now), and be pleasantly surprised. As for me, the journey has just begun.   

This short list (work in progress) of French Pinot Noir wines is intended to assist "smart-phone" users access to my index of wines "readily" available in New Hampshire.
