Alsace Pinot Blancs tend to be broad and creamy, with musky apple tones—which describes this bottling perfectly.
What You Need To Know
The Pinot Blanc grape (known as Pinot Bianco in Italy) yields medium- to full-bodied white wines that can range from creamy and soft to crisp and zesty. This example comes from Alsace, the eastern French region that, unlike the rest of France, labels its wines by grape variety, not where they’re grown. Alsace is one of the world’s top regions for Pinot Blanc, producing whites that combine a luscious texture with intense fruit and minerality. This bottling comes from Bestheim & Châteaux, a co-op close to Colmar that has been around, in one form or another, since 1765. In a terrific vintage like 2011, when Alsace vintners experienced the Indian summer of their dreams, Bestheim’s reserve Pinot Blanc achieved ideal ripeness.
