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

  • Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2006


    Like virtually all Alsatian Pinot Blancs, this particular wine is a blend-60% Pinot Auxerrois and 40% Pinot Blanc. The auxerrois adds a bit of spice. While it isn't as racy as many other Alsatian wines, it is a dependable wine- refreshing and dry. The color is light golden with nice transparency. There's a nice amount of acidity, notes of minera... Read More
