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

  • Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Pinot Blanc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not much of a white wine drinker, but with this wine I'm noticing more complexity rather than the blinding tart peachiness I'm used to. Definitely on a different level than many other whites I've tried. Read More

  • Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Pinot Blanc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Light fragrant nose. Mineral, oily and rich. Good acids, and some spice on the finish. Its not a very potent wine, so take care not to serve too cold as that will dampen the flavor. Read More
