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

The Cuvée Signature range is a selection of reputed villages, Premier and Grand Crus from Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune principally. Harvested, they are produced in very limited quantities.

The "Les Cras" vineyard is located in the famous village of Chambolle-Musigny in the Côte de Nuits, south of Dijon. This vineyard derives its name from the word "crai" which designates a sub-soil formed by an agglomeration of pebbles set in a clay base. It is from this 6.87 acre vineyard that we selected the Pinot Noir grapes for this "Signature Reserve" Chambolle-Musigny.

Intense colour and purplish highlights. A nose redolent of ripe fruit and violet. The boldness of the attack paired with a sensation of fullness supported by very rounded tannins comes as quite a surprise. The fruit is echoed on the palate with a touch of jam, finishing on a slightly animal note.

When Michel Bouchard founded his wine merchant business in Beaune in 1750 with his elder son, he wanted to settle in the heart of Burgundy and its vines. Being close to the vine-growers, he created a unique expertise in selection, wine making and aging with one mission:

Always search for perfection in quality, authenticity in style and prestige in the name.

For over two centuries, this has been the vision of the House of Bouchard Ainé & Fils.
