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

  • I tend to like the 'smoked' flavor in some cheeses, but last night the cheeses we enjoyed were not smoked at all - they were a goat cheese and a sheep cheese - and of course I don't remember their names.  Sandra and I spent the entire Thursday in our nation's capitol - Washington DC.  All the pictures can be seen on my 'Weekday Wine' posting, an...

  • Still a lot to learn about Champagne, but judging from my own palate curious about top champagne's with some Pinot Noir as a significant part of the assemblage (not necessarily Blanc de Noirs), as opposed to BdB. Definitely the most memorable one has been the '99 Winston Churchill Cuvee, though I don't think they reveal their assemblage, it is a... Read More

  • Pinot meunier is generally considered the runt of the champers grapes litter, though the best houses/masterblenders are adept at mixing it in creatively. Not only is it cheaper to produce, but many say it provides an anchor for their blends, particularly in the NVs.I've had champers that tasted like not-even-good vin mousseux because of too much...
