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

Pinot Blanc on Snooth

  • J. Schram Blanc 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Deep golden in color. Much more complex than the blanc de blanc. Nose is full of yeast and dough. It does remind me of a vintage Champagne. It has a tart apple flavor with decent acidity and finish. Read More

  • Benton-Lane Willamette Valley Estate Grown Pinot Blanc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The toasty nose has a distinct cinnamon sugar edge to it and a hot mineral background tone. Pretty extracted in the mouth and not richly flavored with some coffee and tobacco notes on the very tannic finish. Uninteresting. 80pts Read More

  • Yamhill Valley Pinot Blanc Reserve 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Mild acidity and mineral nutiness. It has a silky feel on the tongue with the scent and taste of melons. Pairs with pesto or try an apple-walnut salad with craisins, feta and balsamic vinaigrette. Read More

  • Robert Foley Pinot Blanc Napa Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A fresh minerally taste that eases into a more gentle set of flavors, this lighter-bodied white actually paired well with some cheeses we had though it seemed it would obviously compliment seafood nicely. It's an elegant little number, thought I'm not convinced about the price. Read More
