How to Pronounce Pinot Meunier? French Wine Pronunciation (Champagne Grape)


This is Julien, the French winemaking guy who
makes wine videos here on YouTube yes wine videos and we are looking at how to
pronounce the name of one of the three main wine grape varieties used in
Champagne France to make the famous sparkling wines together with Pinot Noir
and Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier is also one of the most prominent grape variety used
to make champagne. Pinot Meunier is in fact a cousin of the Pinot Noir grape Meunier
means Miller in French and essentially Pinot Meunier is kind of covered with
flour it’s got a little dusty whi dusty thing on the leaves and that’s why it’s
called the Miller Pinot or Pinot Meunier pinot meunier so the T of Pinot is
definitely silent as is always the case here in French but Meunier well you just
have to hear it: Meunier. With the very hard to pronounce sound in French Pinot
Meunier do not say Pinot Meunier but rather Pinot
Meunier the are at the end is kind of silent with the letter e it forms the
sound a so Meunier. not NIER so not Pinot Meunier but rather pinot meunier
pinot meunier used in champagne this is a red grape variety but it’s used to
make white champagne and rose a champagne in France I hope this video
was useful if it was give it a quick number before you go to support my work
have a look around my youtube channel if you like learning more about wine and I
will see you soon in the wonderful world of, yes, wine. Au revoir! bye bye
