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

  • Cuvee du President' Blanc de Blancs Brut Cremant de Limoux 1991

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for a mere £1 from a new website called www.cellartrade.co.uk.The area around the small town of Limoux [about 15 miles south of Carcassonne] has a history of sparkling wine making that goes back to the 16th century and predates Champagne. The Cremant de Limoux appellation was created in 1990 for sparkling wines made ... Read More

  • Have you noticed that wherever you are in the world, the Christmas lunch menu is set in stone? In England smoked salmon followed by a traditional turkey roast and Christmas pudding has produced broad smiles around the festive table for decades … I’m a big fan but the part that I don’t really get is when the same wines are rolled out year on year...

  • Cote Mas Brut Cremant de Limoux NV

    Snoothrank:

    Heady toast and honeyed biscuit aromas with baked apple and pear notes. Crisp and refreshing palate of green apple and golden berries, this is nicely tart on the mid palate with some grapefruit flavor and a burst of acidity which sustains through to the lemon meringue and pineapple finish with a touch of crumb cake. Fresh and refreshing. Read More

  • With Christmas lunch now on the radar, Snoothers who enjoy cooking are already thinking about a wine match with the inevitable smoked salmon starter. For French Sauvignon Blanc lovers Sancerre is a popular choice but how about ringing the changes this year by pulling a Sancerre lookalike off the shelf. Cheverny and Touraine Sauvignon Blanc may n... Read More

  • But then again 2012 and 2014 are hardly all that much 'older vintage's (at least in the case of 'white wine' in general, not PG--ever had any aged white Burgundy, Mosel or Rhein riesling, Champage blanc de blancs, Loire chenin blanc, various from the Jura, Sauternes or Tokaji or Madeira, etc., etc. Al??), even if these bottles are of cheap swill...

  • Italian Wines, for $1 each?Yes. I found them, and they're quite nice! Well, I have to admit that for about a year now, my favorite type of wine is Pinot Grigio. But I have to say, the Soave Classico is what I'm sipping now and it is very SMOOTH. Unbelievable for a buck. This is the Orangevale, California Dollar Tree and they also have a Moscato,...
