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

  • Thinking about have a wine and cheese party with some friends while watching the French Open. Any wine suggestions? I live in The South so right now the weather is very hot and very humid, so wines that serve well chilled would be appreciated. Also, any wine cheese combos you guys know of that are tasty (I'm not the best at combining the two). T... Read More

  • Barboursville Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2006


    I've always been a fan of Barboursville's Cab Franc, but the 2008 Pinot Grigio was really quite good. Shimmering, zesty fruit -- apple, lychee, pineapple -- presented in a clean, racy fashion. Like a fine NZ Sauv Blanc without all the cat-pee overtones. Hey, I'm from Virginia, and I know how mediocre most of our wines are. This one is *good.* Read More

    Wine review by Irie Wines

  • I understand and appreciate the whole science and reasoning behind aging wines in oak. I also really dig the idea and the tradition of it. Unfortunately, I really do not like the flavors that oak aging add to wine. I tend to enjoy the fruitier, "cleaner" reds out there such as barbera, pinot noir, and especially New York State reds. That being ... Read More

  • Basel Cellars Merlot 2005


    This is a big, meaty and satisfying Merlot. Have you been dissuaded by "Sideways" and its adherents from enjoying good Merlot? Why should you be, since the movie's protagonist, Miles, with unbounded irony, ends up sipping Cheval Blanc - a Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend - at the end of the movie after trashing Merlot earlier in favor of Pinot N...
