Top Rated Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc grapes

A relative of both Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc is commonly grown in Germany, Austria, Italy and Hungary — as either a dry or sweet wine; though it is most notably grown in Alsace as a dry, full-bodied wine, both rich and smoky, with tropical notes and a low-acidity. Sometimes blended with other varieties of the region, Pinot Blanc has a creamy texture and an aroma of honey, apple and citrus, as well as floral notes. Below are the best Pinot Blancs we've tasted, starting with our highest rated wines.
