Pinot Blanc

 

Name of varietal: Pinot Blanc
 
Common synonyms: Weissburgunder, Klevner, Feher Burgundi, Pinot Bianco, Rulandske Bile, Rulandske biele, Blanc Vrai
 
Parentage of the grape: genetic mutation of Pinot Noir
 
History of the grape: Pinot Blanc was first grown in Burgundy and Champagne, France, and can be traced by some sources as far back as the 1st century. For a long time, little distinction was made between it and Chardonnay, however a number of vintners who knew what they were doing began producing it as a varietal release. It eventually came to prominence in the Alsace region, where it is one of the four most common grapes grown there. It made its way across Europe and to other parts of the world from there and is now a popular grape in cooler climate regions where it is most able to thrive. 
 
Characteristics of the grape: light to medium-bodied, acidic, grapefruit rind, peach, apricot, canteloupe, honeysuckle, white pepper

  • Lieb Cellars Blanc de Blancs Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Soft hay, white blossom and pear aromas. A hint of sweet spice on entry, this tingles on the palate and comes with fresh lemon, pink grapefruit and a full texture. Turns creamy on the finish, with pastry cream and butter, a touch of tangerine and a light citrus and apple finish. Read More

  • Meyer-Fonne Brut Extra Cremant d'Alsace NV

    Snoothrank:

    Heady savory lemon, toasted hazelnut and fresh yeast aromas are very aromatic here. Theres a bit of cream on the palate which shifts towards lemon and grapefruit notes, more dark toast and smoky brioche, leading straight into a lighter note of peach and apple, finishing with vanilla, cream and some melon. Good complexity. Read More
