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

  • I am having guests the end of the month, one of whom is a rather talented chef. I know she prefers white wines (and tends toward a vegetarin diet). I'm not very educated on whites, and I'm looking for some recommendations, or some hints on where to look. Personally, I prefer something not-too-sweet. What should I be looking at? Read More

  • I'm in spain for the next few months and i'm trying to get a good collection of wines to bring back home. I know very little about the subject but am trying to learn. As far as i can tell, the spanish wines don't categorize by grapes, but by where the winery is located. That being the case, what would be the spanish equivalent of a Pino Grigi... Read More
