crazy story on this "white" Burgundy that geeks love. Many years ago while walking through his vineyards, Henri Gouges noted some vines with white grapes, took some cuttings and grafted them, ultimately making a white wine from grapes now called Pinot Gouges--Pinot Noir has only one gene for color and these vines lost it, making them white. So it is a white or albino Pinot Noir, tastes red but looks white. Couple other producers make it, too. Good, not great wine, though. Fun to blind taste Burg lovers on.
