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

  • When I last left off I was doing my best to stay awake in Reims to adjust to difference in time zones.  Doing my best I was able to stay up to the very late hour of 9pm.  Part of me was disappointed for not having the energy to get out and see the city.  However, the other part kept saying you have a full day to get through tomorrow and the rest...

  • Hi All. I'm brand new to Snooth. Not new to wine, though I'm not by any means educated in it. I try new wines all the time, make notes on what I like, and that's been about the extent of my education. At this moment my favorites are probably Pinot Noirs, Zins, Shiraz and blends...though I'm really enjoying some of the Malbecs I've tried lately. ... Read More
