Winemaker's Notes

"In its fascinating nose of pear, lemon, apple blossom, tangerine rind, nut oils, and white truffle, the 2005 Pinot Blanc Kritt reflects its generous component of ripe Auxerrois, and also somewhat suggests the character of a truffly 1996 Sancerre. Imposingly creamy in texture and palpably dense, this clings with juicy pear fruit, rich nuttiness, pungent citrus zest and subtly salty, stony mineral suggestions. Lovely though it is now, there is no need to rush to drink up a Kreydenweiss Kritt in anything less than five years from the vintage. Why aren't there more outstanding values like this out there, not even from less-prestigious growers? (Incidentally, Kreydenweiss has planted Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois in his Kastelberg, and these will in future inform a separate bottling.)"

This is a fantastic value in white wine - one of the few ageworthy wines available for under $10/bottle. Creamy, balanced, unusual flavor profile, just a wow wine for not much $.

Learn About Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc(pee-no blahnk) Pretty and Simple A mutation of the Pinot family, Pinot Blanc was once commonly mistaken for Chardonnay - it looks quite similar on the vine. But true Pinot Blanc lacks most Chardonnay characteristics. The grape is most at home in Alsace, where it is used both in blends as well as a sole varietal. It's also found in Italy...
