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

  • Simon Hoggart reviewed Roger Scruton's book I Drink Therefore I am: A Philospher's Guide in The Spectator (not WS). He had this to say: "How do you use words to evoke a flavour, an aroma, an evanescent scent? Do you simply say 'this is delicious, you should try it'? Or do you try to find the words? Sometimes the effect can be banal and even hila... Read More

  • I always was under the impression that non-vintage champagne and other sparklers have to be drunk shortly after release and usually never keep them more then a few months. Now a friend of mine claimed that he ages non-vintage champagne for about 5 years, as they would develop a "nuttier" and less fruity taste. So is there any advantage in aging ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Bit of a change from previous tastings but in no way bad. The nose was darker than usual with Olive, summer rain and honeydew melon. The palate was crisp and refreshing with lime and pear. A simple yet highly enjoyable wine and a great summer time sipper. Read More
