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

    Wine review by samantha gaw

  • We began this day wanting to explore more of the Silverado Trail.  Stops in Cliff Lede, Robert Sinskey and Stags Leap Wine Cellars were nice to see, but we did not taste here.  I have had most of the Lede and SLWC wines on the list, so I didn't see a point in tasting there.  All of them want $25 or more for a tasting and they don't even pour tha...

  • My friend had lined up a special VIP tasting at Beringer's Rhine House, but we had some time before our appointment, so we stopped in to St. Supéry on our way up north.  I had tasted a couple of their wines and was curious to taste through their catalogue, so we stopped in. It's a surprisingly industrial looking facility, but nicely appointed in...

  • Fellow wine lovers and educated wine "Snoothies"I understand the Sauternes is a location in France, they produce a fortified wine made from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. I also understand that when you eliminate the "s" from the end of the word Sauternes you have Sauterne made here in the United States somewhere in the New York area.When ... Read More
