10 outstanding Pinot Noirs from £10-50

1. £50+: Gran Moraine Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton, Oregon, 2015

Using fruit from a prized vineyard that was bought by the Jackson Family in 2013, Gran Moraine was born in 2014. Made by brilliant winemaker Eugenia Keegan – partner of Oregon pioneer David Adelsheim – this is a stunning example of darkly coloured intense Pinot, with black cherry fruit, along with vanilla notes from new barriques. While lovely to drink now, it has the potential to develop even greater complexity over time.
