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

Pinot Blanc on Snooth

  • Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars Pinot Blanc 2018

    Snoothrank:

    The 2018 Pinot Blanc (a somewhat underappreciated white clone of Pinot - except in Alsace and western Germany) is made in a fashion applied to Chardonnay with gentle oak treatment. The nose is vanilla-infused sweet apple, and the entry, although softer and less dense than a Chard, has sweet water purity. About as good as it gets for this grape... Read More

  • Interesting tasting DV. You were pretty much all over with the Cabs which I think makes it more interesting. And more interesting was the note on Hendry, which I've never had. We were drinking some wines from Bolgheri the other day, location of Sassicaia, and they were just great."My question is this the way all reviewers do it. For example do t... Read More

  • C. C. Jentsch Cellars Small Lots Series Chardonnay 2017

    Snoothrank:

    The C. C. Jentsch Small Lots Chardonnay is immediately recognizable as a BC ... ... - similar to oak-treated Pinot Blanc. Entry has light oak, quite buttery malolactic notes, but bright, dry and elegant. Expressive of the climate and land, in fact... or clone - or all three. The lightness of the wine in the mouth belies its promise of furthe... Read More

  • 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
