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

  • There's no rhyme or reason to this great assortment of wine, though they are all from the West Coast so that's a start. What they all share is that they deliver both a great drinking experience and super value. Reason enough to check out this selection of wines from Christopher's Wine & Cheese today.

  • Picchetti Winery Pinot Grigio Blanc 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Was surprised by this wine! Picchetti's first venture into Pinot Grigio that I can remember. Very easy drinking, and without that awful astringency on the finish that a lot of cheap Grigio's seem to have. This one has a little body, too, which is a nice contrast to the watery ones out there.

  • Domaine Barmes-Buecher Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc Rosenberg de Wettolsheim 2003

    Snoothrank:

    A fantastic deep gold colour, with strong, dewy spring flower aromas on the nose. It has a medium body -- a pleasantly viscous, creamy mouthfeel -- and a hint of sweetness. What really carries it, underpinning the whole structure of the wine, is a note of nutty sourness that sings and lingers on the tongue. Excellent. First of a case from the Li... Read More
