Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Beautiful golden robe with very bright green reflections. It welcomes us with a citrus and delicate floral aromas of lily of the valley and camomile. In the mouth it has a pleasant moderate acidity which makes this wine a typical representation of a Chablis Grand Cru: mineral and intense.

Critical Acclaim

"An obviously ripe yet clearly Chablis nose of citrus, orchard fruit, seaweed and saline hints where the latter two elements carry over to the big, rich and impressively scaled flavors that possess ample amounts of dry extract as well as a tangy, sappy, mouth coating and moderately austere finish. This is not an especially elegant wine but rather one of power but with excellent complexity. "
92 Points

"Pale, bright straw-yellow. Aromas of pear and hazelnut, plus a whiff of nut skin. Offers good cut and definition to its flavors of menthol, minerals and slightly bitter peach pit. The back end is a tad warm and phenolic, with the peach pit and dusty stone qualities giving the finish a tannic impression. Today the Clos is much sexier; this one needs time to knit. 91(+?) points"

Learn About Chablis

Chablis got a bad rap when its name was plastered on large jug wines in the 1980's and 90's. Luckily, the wine in those jugs has nothing in common with the actual region. Wines produced in Chablis are some of the most unique in the world. Typical descriptors of a classic Chablis include a greenish tinge on the wine, minerality and crisp acidity balanced by a round mouthfeel....
