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

  • You can't tell by looking at it that your favorite wine is about to betray you. You didn't do anything wrong. You fought your way through rush hour crowds to procure it, you chose a food pairing that's a love letter to its aromas and curves.But when you go to have that first glass of it, annoyance strikes. The cork snaps off in the neck, or wors... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I have always felt that the region of Alsace was the forgotten wine region of ... white grapes like Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Gewurtztraminer, Pinot Gris, and a bit of Pinot Noir for the reds. And more than 98% of the wines that Alsace produces is made in a dry style.And now for the big reveal! We discovered a lovely Alsatian Riesling this past w... Read More

  • If you haven't had wines from Romania, you’re missing out. Big time!I know this is a bold statement. With so many amazing wines being produced worldwide today. But, with that being said, I am convinced that there should be room in our cellars for some good bottles of Feteasc Neagr (Black Maiden in English), arguably, the most renowned native gra...

  • I think that's true. There's a lot of new money getting into the wine business - sports stars, movie people, etc., and they need to buy land, hire expensive consultants, buy expensive grapes, and then they can talk about their wine, as if they made it. The people who bought in the 1960s and 1970s, or who come from long-standing families, they ca... Read More

  • This isn’t one of those “next great grape!” articles. People are drinking more Grolleau, period. It may have something to do with growing interest in the Loire Valley - a region that sat in the shadows of its ‘big brothers’ Burgundy and Bordeaux for decades.The Loire Valley has been embraced by new wine drinkers (read: millennials). Its key grap... Read More
