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

  • Moving off a previous topic, I'm starting a new one that is about favourite Sonoma Chardonnays. I will kick things off with my favourites in a few different price ranges:Under $20 range- La Crema Monterey Chardonnay - newer wine for them but nice after a bit of time in the bottle. Not a lot of time but a couple of months:http://www.snooth.com/... Read More

  • I am looking for a Chardonnay that is a carbon copy of Chateau Montelena Chardonnay. You know the one from the movie Bottle Shock......"Buttery, layered, beautiful...." but not brown. All kidding aside, I have shelled out over $50 for this and it is a beautiful, complex, buttery, layered Chardonnay. One of my personal favorites that I really ... Read More

  • Peth-Wetz Weissburgunder & Chardonnay Trocken 2006

    Snoothrank:

    don´t chill this wine to death. If you let it warm to arround 10 degrees celsius (no idea what this is in fahrenheit), it is an excellent wine for drinking it alone without food. Vanilla notes and light citrus notes. If the wine is less than a year old, it tastes a bit sparkly, which I personally do not like Read More

  • As I had mentioned a while back I am making some wine this year and this means for a short period of time I need to be in Sonoma a lot. I need to be there to see what is going on, do punch downs and take readings on the wine. Harvest is a busy time but if you are only doing work on one ton of grapes there isnt a lot to do. This means I find m... Read More

  • Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir California 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I would give this 3.75 stars. I had the 2008 last night at a very nice restaurant. It was one of the cheaper offerings---$32 a bottle. It was delicious. I had it with a blue cheese & pear salad, grilled salmon with saffron buerre blanc. It had more body than most Pinot Noirs....with a fabulous lingering soft tannin silky finish.Imagine my surpri...

    Snoothrank:

    Wow, an Oregon Pinot Noi that I like - what can I say?After many mixed experiences with unripe or just downright bizarre wines from Oregon, it's nice to have a very good one every once in a while. This attractive red had a lot of very fine oak on the nose at first - in fact it reminded me of my grandparents old dining room table with lots of nua... Read More
