Peculiarities of Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc (or White Burgundy) is a white grape variety. It is a result of genetic mutation of Pinot Gris, which in turn derives from a mutation of Pinot Noir. It is believed that Pinot Blanc was already drunk by Charlemagne. Its homeland lies in the French region of Alsace.

The wine is crystalline with light golden yellow colour. Its freshness is noticeable, despite its obvious density. Its sophisticated yet long lasting bouquet reveals the fruitiness of ripe apples and minerality. The wine fills the mouth nicely, repeating the sensations from the nose. The finish is long and fresh, dominated by pleasant acids and minerality. Beli pinot is an elegant, harmonious, full-bodied wine, a perfect match for white fish, grilled or oven-baked, or even for Prosciutto with mild sweet flavour.
