Blanc de blancs

French term (Engl. "white from white") for a white wine made exclusively from white grapes. As a rule, this designation is used for a champagne produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes (i.e. without Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier). Alternatively, "Blanc de cramant" is also used locally limited (see under Cramant). Outside of Champagne this applies to a sparkling wine made exclusively from white grapes. In contrast, a white wine or champagne made from dark grapes is called Blanc de noirs (literally "white from black").
