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 like what I'm told is referred to a "jammy" wine. One example is Altmura. I know it's not sweet however to me it has somewhat of a sweet taste. Any recommendations of some wine to try?   Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Dark toast and biscuit aromas with an oaty, buttered note with crisp fruit notes of lemon and grapefruit. Lively and tart on the palate with searing acidity, fresh citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, melon rind and more smoky toasted notes of wheat and barley, finishing with more tart acidity and puckering citrus pith.

  • This Topic is partially intended to start a new thread on daily wine drinking as the earlier topics are just too long and too general.  How about telling us more about your choices and helping me start a new thread for the next generation, so to speak?  The "why" is the interesting part for some of us - but pictures are always welcome; after all...

  • Don't be shy now... I don't always drink classified growths, the best boutique wines of California, Washington or Oregon or even fine Champagne every night.  Price is part of the equation, I suppose, but "rightness" or "fit" seems more apropos.  A modest Riesling, a Viognier from Provence, or a good quality (but modestly priced) A.
