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

  • ‘Tis the season for sparkling wine, and I don’t hear anyone complaining.  Ok, so I do hear some complaints: I’m hearing that there are just too many great sparkling wine choices, and people want help sorting through the billions of available bubbles. (With 49 million bubbles per bottle, I think I may be understating the situation here.) Any disc... Read More

  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Hills Horse Heaven Vineyard 2008


    This sauvignon blanc gives me what I have been looking for in a pinot gris.. This wine is a real buy at $11 which is what I got six for at safeway. It is a real crowd pleaser. Good complexity and an explosion of flavor with a clean finish. Drinking great right now but I suspect it will evolve in the bottle for a year or two.. Read More

  • Some discussion of clones may shed light on the New World expression of Pinot Noir. I have long believed that clones explain a great deal of the diversity found in the many wines made from this globe-hopping noble grape. Terroir, vineyard maintenance and climate do not seem to fully explain the differences - at least, not to my satisfaction. ... Read More

  • This week I interviewed a local wine maker here in Western Pennsylvania for my podcast. He makes all of his wines from hybrid grapes because they grow best here in Western PA. His logic is that pretty much once a decade we have a winter cold enough to kill vitis vinifera grapes and they would never be able to reach their full potential here. Do ... Read More

    Yeasty and fresh on the nose with a hint of Pina Colada that appears on the tropically fruited palate. Nicely integrated but obviously yeasty notes compliments the yellow fruited palate which offers up a touch of creaminess and leads to a nice finish. 89pts Read More
