Pinot Blanc
Pinot Blanc is a white grape that is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. It is often compared to Chardonnay and vinified the same way, though plenty of crisper expressions are out there as well as sweet dessert wines.

Wines made from Pinot Blanc are most often found in Alsace and Burgundy in France, many Italian regions (there known as Pinot Bianco), and Germany and Austria (there known as Weissburgunder). Pinot Blanc can also be found in many new world locations such as Argentina, Canada, and the United States.

Pinot Blanc has a medium to full body and light, crisp flavors of apple, melon, pear, and orchard fruits. It is best paired with light seafood and mild sauces or cheeses. (Wine/Grapes)
