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

  • Kuentz-Bas Alsace Blanc 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A great and sturdy Alsatian every day white. Nice balance between the mixture of varietals. I can't get enough Chasselas lately, so this wine does it for me! Floral and aromatic with a great contrast between tart and mellow. Read More

  • Panther Creek Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Winemaker's Cuvée 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is the true sense of Oregon Pinot and Shea vineyard. Nose is full of funk and earth. Lots of earthiness and layers of red and black cherry. Good acid and nice balance. Nice to taste an American wine with 13% alcohol with great flavors. Read More

Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
