Baco Noir

Baco Noir is a hybrid red wine grape created at the beginning of the 20th century by French hybridizer, Francois Baco. It is a crossing Folle blanche (a white wine grape from France) and an a mystery red wine grape of the Vitis riparia variety found in North America. It is possible that genetic mapping will eventually bring the origins of this mystery variety to light. 

The grape produces rich, highly pigmented red wines with pronounced acidity. Baco Noir based wines are capable of moderate to long term aging and, in many cases, require some time in the cellar, in order to soften the wine's aggressive acidity. Aromas of the wine are pleasantly rustic and smoky.

Ontario’s Henry of Pelham has been particularly successful making and marketing wines with Baco Noir, despite the fact that under VQA law, the grape is relegated to Tier 2 status – meaning wines made from the grape may only list "product of Ontario" on the label rather than any specific appellation.

  • Angels Gate Winery Gewürztraminer Niagara Peninsula Vqa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This fragrant straw coloured Gerwurtz delights the nose with lychee and flowers the palate is distinctly dry and oozes oiliness. The finish remains dry and relatively long lasting. The oiliness can be off-putting and leans toward the distinctly new world Gewurtz style. Not my favourite Gerwurtz out there. If paired appropriately with spicy foods... Read More

  • Hudson Chatham Baco Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Light red color on the pour. Comes out of the doors running with big plum and strawberry fruit teeming with acidity that dies out perhaps to quickly. Leaves your palate with a slight peppery taste but not much of a finish. Read More

  • Hudson Chatham Baco Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Perhaps this wine isn't for me. There was a fairly big, buttered popcorn aroma on the nose with tart red berry underlying. A bouquet of pomegranate, cranberry and briary red berry fruit along with some boysenberry notes. Also, wet stone. On the palate it's got screaming acid. Lots of tart red fruit and strong mineral. It's interesting. The... Read More

  • Hudson Chatham Baco Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit peppery, with a dark, black raspberry color. A little chalky yet juicy, with bits of strawberry and watermelon. Very light tannins with a long, mouth-watering finish. Read More
