Pinot Meunier

French red wine

Pinot Meunier is pronounced "PEE-noh muh-NYAY". This red grape is used in Champagne as a component of the bubbly wine. It is used in small amounts, blended in with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Meunier is named after the French word for "miller", because the leaves have an underside that looks like flour.

Pinot Meunier is known for its acidity and fruity flavors.
