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

    Good wine with the nose of a muscat, the finish of a California Chardonnay and the mineral qualities of a pinot grigio. Well balanced and perfect for special fun occasions. Read More

  • Hello all!! My husband and I enjoy wine. He is really good at picking blind, but then he favors Chiantis and Maison Louis Jadot and has never gone wrong. He can even pick, let's say a Portuguese wine -which we love- and it will be good.I, on the other hand, love to read about wine and investigate. I don't always do as well. For example, I just w...

  • Lucien Albrecht Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2009


    OK, this might be the worst wine I've ever had given it's supposed potential. That is, it's not Alice White; It's got some pedigree - esteemed "house" from France, etc... But one day after opening it, it was a mix of gentle floral hints and vomit. Even on the first day, it was kind of gross. I have tried this wine a few times, and each time ... Read More
