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

  • Boutari Moschofilero White 2007


    This is by far the best white I have ever tasted. It is a balance between sweet and dry. Like in between Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio/Gris. Forget pairing-this is a treat unto itself. Smooth, crisp, fruity- but not cheap. Read More

    A fascinating blend of Alsatian grapes. Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewurtztraminer, Muscat and Riesling. fruit salad on the nose. lots of peach and apricots on the palate with lots of honey and some alcohol heat that blows away by the second glass. This wine is food friendly but I would recommend it more with chicken than seafood since it doesn't ... Read More

  • Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Pinot Blanc 2005


    Light, buttery nose with a hint of almonds and light stone fruits. Flavors are oily, buttery, and nutty. It's more savory than sweet, and has a nice long finish. Solid. Read More

  • First Flight 4 Bottle Classic Collection


    Nice selection of well-priced wines from this newcomer. Wines are available on their website, not much distribution as they are really small. The sauvignon blanc was really crisp and citrusy and the pinot was rockstar! Read More

  • Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc les Princes Abbés 2006


    3 of 9 on the sweetness meter on the back of the bottle (the meter starts at 1, not 0 though). A touch of bottle funk immediately on opening the bottle, but this blew off quickly. Some peach on the nose but its a bit muted. The nose makes me expect a fatter wine than this turns out to be. On the palate there's good balance with the acidity matc... Read More
