Pinot Noir! The 2022 Guide To The Best Pinot Noir Wines
Don't fall for the "great Pinot Noir has to expensive" mantra we hear so much! For some reason this variety tends to be extremely susceptible to snobbery, with consumers and winemakers alike dreaming of transcendental experiences. And while it is indeed a finicky grape to grow, that doesn't mean you have to spend a boatload just to get a decent bottle. Witness the many bottles on our list here of the best Pinot Noir under $20.
Even so Pinot Noir can be a hard nut to crack at lower price points. However, don't despair, we've got plenty of reviews and recommendations right here and they are not all from where you might expect!
One of the most important rules you can follow in your quest for the best inexpensive Pinot Noir is to not limit yourself to Oregon, Burgundy and the big name areas of California. Places like New Zealand, the rest of France and even Germany can produce great Pinot as well -- and the best part is that it is oftentimes at a much lower price!
Typically lighter-bodied, with plenty of strawberry, cherry, and earthy flavors, one of the appeals of this variety is how well it goes with food. Ranging in style from oaked to unoaked there is plenty to explore in our list of the best Pinot under $20!
