Weißburgunder (Weissburgunder) - white vine variety


Synonymous with the French Pinot blanc, this ancient variety thrives in fertile or chalky soils and ripens fairly late. Weissburgunder wines have a less pronounced, relatively neutral bouquet, yet more acidity, than the Grauburgunder (from which it mutated).

The drier style Weissburgunder wines are extremely popular with food. Most plantings are in Baden and the Pfalz, but it is also a traditional variety in the Saale-Unstrut and Sachsen regions.
