Nebbiolo Vs Pinot Noir, which one is the most tantalising grape? The one that excites your senses or desires? The one that torments or teases you with the slight promise of something that is unobtainable? You can use this pack in 3 ways. Buy all six wines and get the bonus gift (and free freight!), or you can just buy the 3 Pinot or 3 Nebbiolo. Whichever option you choose you will get a discount and free freight.
This is a question that cannot be answered by comparing six bottles of wine. But it is a damn fun way to enjoy life as restrictions are easing. Rather than answer the debate Nebbiolo VS Pinot Noir, this pack will let you see some great examples of each grape. The six wines in this pack are an even split of Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir. 2 Rose, 2 Australian, 2 Mature examples from their homeland: 1 Burgundy, 1 Barolo.

One Laguiole Jean Neron Corkscrew This isn’t just pretty, but it is that for sure. This is a thoughtful and hopefully useful gift. With all the screwcaps in our lives now, this is a tool to open the lovely Burgundy and Barolo that is about to come into your life. You might actually need this to pull the cork on the two expensive wines in the pack. And if you don’t need one, you probably want one. Am I right?
They would be perfect to serve:
- as the centrepiece to a dinner party,
- in pairs,
- as a trio of the one grape, or
- drink the wines on their own. Even without context, they are all lovely wines that you will find pleasure in drinking.
All the wines will also hold up over a couple of nights, in fact, some of them will be much better on night two and three! You can always jump on the repour solution for longer-term keeping.
This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one-trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
Famously producing long-lived red wines which are light of colour, but abundant in tannin from Barolo, Barbaresco and various other local wines. This is the variety that defines the region. Typical flavours include Tar, roses, anise, cherry, blackberry and truffle.
