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

If the Pros disagree or want to embellish, feel free to post me .There are only 5 tastes that a human can sense: 1) sweet 2) sour 3) bitter 4) salty 5) spicy.

  • There’s not much a wine guy can do when talk comes round to St. Patty’s Day. There are the usual green suggestions--Vinho Verde, Patricia Green Pinot Noir, Domaine Chandon’s green sparkling wine--but no real Irish wine. I could always turn to Whiskey, but in an effort to keep peace in the world, particularly the small corner I inhabit, I’ll turn... Read More

  • Kuentz-Bas Alsace Blanc 2007


    Nose of light apple, citrus, and tropical fruit. Light in the mouth with taste of sour apple and citrus. Good acid bite, but not harsh. Some mineral tang. Might pair well with light spicy white fish or maybe a similarly prepared white meat, e.g. pork chop. Color is almost clear, a light straw. Read More
