Pinot Blanc has a lukewarm reputation, presumably because most people first experience it as the poor relation of Alsatian wine, relegated below even Gewurtztraminer, my personal least favorite wine grape. The Pinot Blanc might not be planted in great sites in Alsace, but there are some excellent examples in the Alto Adige where it is called Pinot Bianco or Weissburgunder: green-apple, mineral, wet-stones, floral hints, extremely drinkable and very versatile with food. Pinot Grigio gets all the attention, but there's no doubt which of the two I'm opening. (It ages, too; try the better examples with 3-5 years of bottle-age.)
Look for the following Pinot Blancs arriving this year:
