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

  • Magnificent Wine Company White Blend Columbia Valley House Wine 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is another Charles Smith winner. The wine is full-flavored, and the tannins brush against spice and fruit. One could do worse at twice the price. Read More

  • Korbel Extra Dry NV

    Snoothrank:

    A perfect sparkling wine for mimosas! I prefer the Extra Dry to Brut. Korbel has a light apple and melon sweetness from sip to finish - a lively and very enjoyable glass of bubbly. Also pairs well with Belgian chocolate, with or without hazelnuts. Read More

  • Jade Mountain White Blend Blend 2008

    Snoothrank:

Because it was served extremely chilled, I couldn't smell much in the bouquet and couldn't taste much beyond the grape-y sweetness (very much like whit... Read More

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.
