myth-busting pinot noir?

Myth-busting?

Not exactly so – it’s not just passtoutgrains – or Côteaux Bourguignone that can contain gamay or others. There is a tolerated amount of non-pinot in very many vineyards, even from very covetable labels. It’s really not that uncommon for red wines also to contain grapes of pinot blanc, pinot gris or chardonnay – but practically the percentage is very small, probably less than 1%.

    Another example: the Cesar grape in Irancy. Some growers use 10-20 percent – or more – in their wines.
