Blanc de blancs ("white of whites") is a French term for white wine made entirely from white grapes (as opposed to blanc de noirs, white wine made entirely from black grapes). The phrase was originally used in Champagne (the region) to denote a lighter and more fragrant style of Champagne (the bubbly) made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes instead of the more common Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape. These days, blanc de blancs refers to any table or sparkling wine made with one or more white grape varietals. See also blanc de noirs.
