Welcome aboard!

Yes. buerre blanc means white butter and lemon buerre blanc is lemon flavored butter. The "white" means that the butter is melted but not allowed to darken in the pan.

This should break down all of the french butter terms for you

Beurre: French for Butter.

Beurre blanc: French for white butter. Delicate sauce made from shallots, white wine, vinegar and butter.

Beurre Manie: a thickener made by combining 2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour and formed into small balls. A thick, buttery paste will result.

Beurre Noir: French for black butter. Butter cooked to a dark brown, not black; traditionally flavored with capers and an acid such as lemon or vinegar.

Beurre Noisette: French for brown butter; Made by melting butter until it turns a light brown.
