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

    I bought this because I love reds and the label was striking. Paid under $10. I was shocked at the taste of this Walla Walla Washington red. Fruity, earthy, a bit spicy and a wonderful finish with tannins to tickle your gums. Cannot believe this is priced so low. Well, I'm off to purchase a few more bottles.Lefty- The Great Pacific Northwest Read More

  • While Sonoma is well known for red wines -- just think of all the Dry Creek Zinfandels, Alexander Valley Cabernets, and Russian River Pinots that we’ve fallen in love with -- it’s now time to give Sonoma’s whites their due! Sonoma’s complex mix of geography, geology, and winemaking styles has allowed almost all white varieties to find a home in ... Read More

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More

  • Hello All!I'm putting a menu together for a wine pairing and wonder if anyone can recommend a white in the $25 range that pairs well with mushrooms stuffed with foie gras, they will be served alongside a carmelized onion bread pudding, so I guess I need a pretty significant white to stand up to that.  I would even consider a red if there is a be...

  • Torii Mor Pinot Blanc White Usa Oregon Rogue Valley 2008


    The aromatics here are quite fruity but at the same time reserved and cool with a suggestion of kiwi among the green fruited nose and a floral aspect that gives this a touch of sweet tea on the nose. On entry this is sweetly fruited but shows fine acid cut. the fruit leans toward the nectarine end of the spectrum with a nice bit of quince at its... Read More

  • Cooking for the inlaws (very critical food people).  The Lobster Fra Diavolo i'm making includes fresh serrano instead of dried crushed red pepper (adds a nice brightness) and both dry white wine (prob a sauvignon blanc) and cognac.  Normally I'd serve the same or similar wine that I'm cooking with, but for some reason, it just seems a little un...

  • Hi, I am looking to buy birth year bottles for my girls (born in '95 and '97).  Which region and varietal can hold up for 21 years before popping the cork?  I'm guessing French wines will be the most common response, but my knowledge to this region is pretty limited (primarily drink CA, WA, and Italian wines).  Also not looking to break the bank...
